Limit pdf documents to one particular computer for viewing

I am creating an application that gives users the ability to download a pdf document.

I want to somehow "tag" this pdf document so that only the user who downloaded it can open it on his/her computer.

Nobody else should be able to open it on another computer.

Please let me know if there is a way to accomplish this.

You need to use a "digital rights management" (DRM) solution. Whenever you see "DRM", you need to translate in your head to "expensive" :)
There are solutions available from Adobe and from 3rd parties. Take a look at FileOpen: http://www.fileopen.com
