If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rachel Furner. This is part of the short course ‘Quantum Computing – Theory and Practice’, https://talks.cam.ac.uk/show/index/86491 This course covers fundamental theoretical concepts of quantum computation and quantum information will be covered. In addition, hands-on experimentation of quantum algorithms will be demonstrated on actual quantum devices. Special consideration will be given to realization of limitations of current, non-fault tolerant quantum systems, as well as means to mitigate them when possible. Specifically, lecture 1 covers: a. Introduction and overview – historical review, quantum bits, quantum computation, quantum algorithms, quantum information, models of computation, complexity analysis b. Algebraic preliminaries – Pauli matrices, adjoint, Hermitians and unitary operators, tensor product spaces, commutative and anti-commutative relations c. Brief introduction to quantum mechanics – the postulates of quantum mechanics (state space, evolution, quantum measurement and composite systems) There will be a 15 minute break in the middle of the lecture. It is useful for students to have a laptop/tablet (or even a smartphone) for some of the more practical examples, but this is not necessary. Those without computer access can follow a demo shown by the instructor.
