An Introduction to Quantum Computation
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
IEEE ITW 2020, Riva del Garda, Italy
In this tutorial I will provide a brief introduction to quantum computation. The first half of the tutorial will focus on the basic principles of quantum circuits and quantum information processing. Topics here include qubits, quantum gates, quantum measurement, and entanglement. In the second half we will apply these principles and study some preliminary quantum algorithms such as the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm and the Bernstein-Vazirani algorithm.
