This will be a Pace University leading edge computing course for Computer Science PhD and advanced masters students. This quantum computing course will demonstrate that the Seidenberg School is providing a leading-edge computing technology education to its students, thus making Pace University competitive with major universities in the greater NYC area.
This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of quantum computing. Topics covered include quantum computing circuits, particularly quantum gates, and comparison with classical computing gates and circuits; quantum algorithms; mathematical models of quantum computation; quantum error correcting codes; and quantum cryptography.
Drs. Tappert and Frank will cover the book and background material, and Prof. Barabasi will handle the tools and arangements with IBM. We will have student teams working on projects with the outcome of each project being a paper presented at the May 2018 Research Day Conference. All PhD students must make a presentation on some course material.
An extensive course website presents most of the course information. Some material, basically of internal nature, resides on Blackboard. Links in the left menu area of the course website are to:
Project work and presentations 50%, Qualifying/Final exam 50%
