Quantum Computation

Kurzbeschreibung:

We give an introduction to quantum computation using the Quantum Toolbox in Python (QuTiP) package. No prior knowledge in quantum computation or quantum mechanics is needed. At the end of the workshop we show how to use the cloud connected quantum computer of IBM (https://quantumexperience.ng.bluemix.net/qx/experience).

We give an introduction to quantum computation using the Quantum Toolbox in Python (QuTiP) package. No prior knowledge in quantum computation or quantum mechanics is needed. At the end of the workshop we show how to use the cloud connected quantum computer of IBM (https://quantumexperience.ng.bluemix.net/qx/experience).
In the beginning we give a brief introduction to quantum information. We want to help the participants to implement basic protocols like quantum teleportation or superdense coding.

Vorraussetzungen:

No prior knowledge in quantum computing nor quantum mechanics required.

Laptops with some python environment are required, anaconda (https://anaconda.org/) recommended.

Prior download and setup of the QuTiP package (http://qutip.org/) is required.
