Description: Quantum computing is an emerging field with the potential to revolutionize various industries, including cryptography, scientific computation, optimization, and machine learning. Quantum Computing Algorithms is a course designed to introduce students to the foundations and practical algorithms of quantum computing from a systems perspective to equip them for the evolving technological landscape. The course will first refresh students on required mathematical concepts in linear algebra, probabilities, and statistics. Students will also learn about fundamental quantum principles, including superposition, entanglement, reversibility, interference, and circuits. The course will then delve into advanced quantum algorithms, especially variational and parameterized codes, including search, optimization, machine learning, and quantum simulation. Students will gain hands-on experience with Python-based quantum programming languages, Cirq and Tensorflow Quantum, to program current quantum computers. Cross-list: COMP 558. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for COMP 458 if student has credit for COMP 558.
