Quantum Information (QI) PHSCS 513R, Fall 2011 Tue-Thu 9:00-9:50 a.m. 261 ROTC 11/outline.htm
Introductions Who am I? Why am I here? What do I hope to achieve in 513R? What special skills do I have?
Quantum – What does that mean?
Classical Physics…Galileo Quantum Physics…Planck Classical Computation…Turing Classical Information…Shannon Quantum computation…Feynman Quantum measurement…von Neumann Quantum Foundations… (Einstein &) J.S. Bell Entanglement…Schroedinger Perspectives: The road to QI
Special Topics in Physics (PHSCS 222 prerequisite) What are frontier topics in physics? Do they impact QI? Are they impacted by QI?
How do I pass this 513R class? What will we do? CP, HW, IP, MT, F How do you communicate? Sources for QI? (Linear Algebra prerequisite) What is Linear Algebra?
