Introduction to Quantum Computing (Blockveranstaltung, WS18/19)

Two scientific revolutions embossed the first half of the 20th century. First, pioneers like Konrad Zuse, Alan Turing and John von Neumann developed the principles for the first useful computers. On the other hand, the theories on quantum mechanics shattered the world of classical physics, which hasn't been significantly changed since the days of Isaac Newton.

While computers are ubiqutious in the modern world and changed our society in many ways, the impact of quantum mechanics is less obvious but even more important. Without the quantum mechanic description of atoms, semiconductors and lasers would not be possible. Modern technologies like CD/DVD players or computer hardware rely on this technology.

In the last decades, both scientific disciplines have been slowly merged together, forming a new discipline called Quantum Computing. The goal is to build a quantum computer, develop quantum algorithms and to study how quantum mechanics influences modern computer science.

This lecture will give an overview and introduction to quantum computing, including:

- mathematic fundamentals of quantum computing
- linear algebra
- introduction to quantum mechanics
- new classes of complexity for quantum computers
- quantum computers and quantum registers
- quantum teleportation
- challenges for modern cryptography caused by quantum computers
- (already existing) quantum hardware and quantum computers

The exercises will further deepen the knowledge learned during the lectures and will give first experiences on developping quantum algorithms.
