Introduction to Quantum Information and Quantum Computation
FK7037. 7,5 credits.

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: 1. Basic quantum mechanics including quantum entanglement and quantum measurement. 2. Classical information theory and its generalization to quantum information. Quantum channels and quantum cryptography. 3. Quantum computing: quantum gates and elementary quantum circuits, quantum algorithms, and quantum error correcting codes. 4. Physical realizations. The course conveys skills are useful to follow the developments in disciplines such as quantum information and quantum computers.
