PHYS 340 - Quantum Information Science


(Same as CPSC 320 .) Prerequisites, CPSC 230  and MATH 211  or MATH 215 . This multi-disciplinary course introduces the study of finite-dimensional collections of quantum bits. Using the circuit model of quantum computation, the course illustrates concrete algorithms that show an advantage over classical methods, including those discovered by Deutch-Josza, Simon, Grover, and Shor, along with basic error correction. (Offered spring semester.) 3 credits
