Course description and aims

In this intensive course, advanced topics in the wide range of informatics such as mathematical information sciences, intelligence sciences, life-sciences and socio-economic sciences are introduced by visiting lecturers.
The aim of this course is to broaden students' perspectives by lectures of advanced topics by active scientists in the front line.
Note: There is a short manuscript titled “Can Monte Carlo methodology allow us to implement Shor’s algorithm?” prepared by Machida and Shibakov for this course, which can be downloaded at math.tntech.edu/machida/machida-shibakov-2019.pdf. This white paper explains their motivation in organizing this course on quantum computation and Monte Carlo methodology.
