6cp; 3hpw, online, weekly
Requisite(s): 41076 Methods in Quantum Computing

Fields of practice: Quantum Information Science program



Students will develop an understanding of the most famous quantum algorithms, including Shor’s efficient quantum algorithm for integer factorisation and Grover’s search algorithm. Students will also be introduced to algorithms based on quantum walks, an analog of random walks, algorithms for simulating quantum systems, and quantum algorithms for solving systems of linear equations. Further applications of these algorithms to optimisation and machine learning will be discussed.
