PHYS 75 Quantum Computation and Information
Overview of basic ideas in classical and quantum computation. Concepts and physical realizations of quantum bits (qubits). Topics in quantum computation may include the Deutsch-Jozsa, quantum Fourier transform, Shor factorization and Grover search algorithms. Topics in quantum communication include quantum key distribution schemes and quantum teleportation. Issues relating to the foundations and interpretations of quantum mechanics will be revisited throughout the course.
