Quantum Computing

Course
2010-2011

Goal

This course aims to provide the students an insight in the fascinating area of Quantum Computing. Despite the fact that Quantum Computing is based on Quantum Physics no background in physics or advanced mathematics is required to participate this course.

Description

The course consists of regular lecturers in which we look at Quantum Computing through the eyes of a computer scientist. This means that after the presentation of some necessary basic knowledge, several topics are addressed like architecture, algorithms, programming languages, cryptography, and hardware. This results in knowledge of an exiting research field, of which it is clear that despite the progress made, many hurdles still have to be taken.

Method

Regular lectures.

Examination

Written exam.

Literature

Noson S. Yanofsky and Mirco A. Mannucci, Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists, Cambridge University Press, 2008, ISBN 978-0-521-879965.
