This course is an introduction to and survey of Quantum Computing, an emerging interdisciplinary field of science which has the potential to revolutionize computation over the next ten years, to transform chemistry, medicine, engineering and communications, as well as to change our understanding of the physical world. The course will build an intuitive approach to quantum computation and algorithms, but also will advance relevant vocabulary and skills for faculties and graduate students in engineering, computing, applied mathematics, chemistry, physics and related sciences. Co-scheduled with DCS 501 and ESE 523. In the course we will view quantum computing from computer science’s perspective and will delve into different theoretical aspects of quantum computing and information closely related to computer science.

Prerequisites: None. Knowledge of probability theory and linear algebra is a plus, but not mandatory.

Academic Integrity

Each student must pursue his or her academic goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Faculty are required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to the Academic Judiciary. Faculty in the Health Sciences Center (School of Health Technology & Management, Nursing, Social Welfare, Dental Medicine) and School of Medicine are required to follow their school-specific procedures. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty, please refer to the academic judiciary website.

Critical Incident Management

Stony Brook University expects students to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty are required to report to the Office of Judicial Affairs any disruptive behavior that interrupts their ability to teach, compromises the safety of the learning environment, or inhibits students' ability to learn. Faculty in the HSC Schools and the School of Medicine are required to follow their school-specific procedures.
