Bachelor of Physics (Quantummechanics 1), or equivalent background knowledge of quantum mechanics
Introduction to quantum information processing from a physics perspective; topics include: qubits, Bloch sphere, fidelity, quantum gates (Pauli, Hadamard, Toffoli, CNOT), density matrix, pure vs. mixed states, entanglement, Schmidt decomposition, concurrence, teleportation, Bell states, Bell inequality, no-cloning theorem, quantum key distribution, quantum algorithms (Deutsch-Jozsa, Simon, Grover), quantum error correction
At the end of the course the student should be able to understand the essential aspects of a modern research publication in the field of quantum computation.
Mode of instruction
Written examination, with questions modeled after the exercises from the tutorials. There is a possibility to retake the exam.
Registration for Brightspace occurs via uSis.
