CP/PC310A will be offered this winter (2014).

PC310A/CP310A: Introduction to Quantum Computing

Quantum computing offers the possibility of dramatic advances in computational power compared to the best computers we have today. In addition, novel quantum protocols such as teleportation and unconditionally secure communication have already been demonstrated. This course provides an introduction to this exciting and cutting-edge field. Topics include an overview of quantum theory, quantum algorithms, teleportation, secure quantum communication, error correction and the latest state-of-the-art experiments. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is required.

Prerequisites: MA 122 and students must be in 3rd or 4th year, majoring in physics (or photonics), computer science, mathematics or chemistry.
