Course description and aims

Applications of quantum mechanics to communication and computation are explained. Topics will include quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, and quantum algorithms. Prerequisites are linear algebra and probability theory only, *BUT THEY ARE REALLY REQUIRED*. The instructor will explain mathematics and physics used in the explanation of the above topics.

Student learning outcomes

A student should be able to mathematically verify the correctness of various methods in quantum information processing.

Keywords

quantum cryptography, quantum computer, quantum information
