Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation, 7.5 credits

About the course

The course covers the rapidly expanding research field of quantum information and quantum computation. The course is an information theoretic approach to basic laws of quantum physics. The course consists of four parts:

• Basic quantum mechanics including quantum entanglement, quantum measurement and quantum decoherence. • Classical information theory and its generalization to quantum information. Quantum channels and quantum cryptography.

• Quantum computing: quantum gates and elementary quantum circuits, quantum algorithms, and quantum error correcting codes.

• Physical realizations.
