Quantum Computer Programming
Quantum computing is an emerging computational paradigm with vast potential. This course is an introduction to modern quantum programming for students who want to work with quantum computing technologies and learn about new paradigms of computation. A physics / quantum mechanics background is not required. The course covers the model of quantum computation, quantum programming languages, hybrid quantum/classical programming, quantum algorithms, quantum error correction, and applications. The course is hands on using open source Python packages for working with publicly available quantum processors.
Prerequisites: linear algebra and programming at the undergraduate level.
