5512. Introduction to Quantum Computing

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Open to graduate students in the CSE program, others with consent. Recommended preparation: CSE 3500, CSE 3502, and MATH 2420Q.

Grading Basis: Graded

Introduction to quantum computing, quantum algorithms, and quantum information theory. Quantum mechanics including elementary aspects of its mathematical formalism; quantum circuit model and quantum complexity theory; development and analysis of several fundamental quantum algorithms, focusing on Grover's algorithm for database search and Shor's number-theoretic algorithms. Second half covers the density matrix formalism of quantum mechanics, von Neumann entropy, quantum channels, and quantum error-correction. If time permits, some implementations of quantum computers and current progress will be discussed.
