Quantum Computing WS17 / SS18  
Vorlesung:  Do 15:15  16:45 CPO3176 (WS17) 
Do 14:15  15:45 CPO3176 (SS18)  
Für Studierende der Fakultäten Physik und Informatik ab 5. Semester, MasterStudierende 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)  Liquidstate NMR quantum computers 
11)  Trapped ions and atoms 
12)  Solid state quantum computers 
13)  Quantum communication
