Dieter Suter, Joachim Stolze
Quantum Computing WS13 / SS14
Vorlesung: Do 10:15 - 11:45 HG II / HS 4
Für Studierende der Fakultäten Physik und Informatik ab 6. 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.

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
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

Modulabschlussprüfung mündlich: 18.-19.9., P1-O1-216
