Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of today’s “classical” computation and communication systems. In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field.
- To understand the operation, potential, and limitations of the main theoretical results (algorithms, error correction, communication)
- To be able to use the formalism of quantum information (unitary matrices, Hermitian matrices, state vectors, density matrices, etc)
- To obtain an overview of the experimental state of the art, and an appreciation of future prospects.
