CPEN 514

Quantum Information and Computation

This course introduces ECE graduate students to a comprehensive set of topics in quantum information, algorithms, and quantum computer hardware. Specifically, the following topics: quantum mechanics & information, quantum circuits, the gate model of quantum computation, quantum algorithms including the quantum Fourier transform and phase estimation, implementation of quantum computers, errors from decoherence, and error detection and correction. Emphasis is placed on analytic reasoning, but the course also exposes students to small coding projects. 

Please note that students who have completed EECE 571S in a previous term cannot be granted credit for CPEN 514, as they have the same course material and only the name and course number have changed.

3 credits
