Quantum Computing WS11/SS12
Fr 12:15 - 13:45 HG II / HS 4
Für Bachelor-Studierende der Fakultäten Physik und Informatik
ab 5. Semester, Master-Studierende und Doktoranden
Quantum computers use quantum mechanical systems to store and process information. By processing superpositions of states in parallel, their computing power is exponentially larger than that of classical computers for certain problems.
This page illustrates how the operation of a quantum computer differs from that of a classical computer.

The lecture will be based on the book 'Quantum Computing - A Short Course from Theory to Experiment'

The following topics will be covered:

  1. Introduction
  2. Physics of computation
  3. Elements of classical computer science
  4. Quantum mechanics
    4.4 Entanglement measures
  5. Quantum bits and quantum gates
    Quantum transport through spin chains
  6. Feynman's contribution
  7. Errors and decoherence
  8. Tasks for quantum computers
  9. How to build a quantum computer
  10. Liquid state NMR quantum computers
  11. Trapped ions and atoms
  12. Solid state quantum computers
  13. Quantum communication
