Quantum computing is considered to be a promising technology for some specific types of computing purposes. Modeling of quantum computing could help study and research of this field. In this dissertation, we approach quantum computing from a communication perspective that is to model quantum computing with a generalized noisy communication channel approach. We proposed a generalized noisy communication channel approach (GNCom) for quantum computing. The proposed GNCom approach is applied to quantum computing as a universal quantum register. GNCom further extended the noisy communication channel framework by associating it with Quantum Electrodynamics (QED). Based on GNCom and QED, we proposed a quantum computer design technique.
