Mathematics of Quantum Computation (math 488/588, Spring 2006)
Instructor. Haru Pinson
Quantum computing
is a revolution in the whole idea of computation.
While a quantum computer of significant size has not yet been
built, the field is just beginning. Students have
a unique opportunity to become familiar with
an open area of research.
The effort is multidisciplinary, involving computer science, engineering,
mathematics, and physics.
The intent of this first course
on quantum computation is to focus on its numerous mathematical aspects.
One highlight will be Shor's factorization
algorithm. The course will also cover the
basics of quantum computations such as quantum circuits and the
quantum Fourier transform. It will be self contained as much as possible.
