This course will provide an introduction to the theory, formalisms and algorithms of quantum computing. The programming language will be Python; experience with Python will be assumed. Experience with quantum mechanics is not necessary; an introductory-level understanding of linear algebra will be assumed. The PennyLane quantum-computing programming framework (installation instructions here), provided by Xanadu, will be used. No experience with quantum computing will be expected. Classes will be held, July 25, 27, 29, 12:30-3:30pm,
in the SciNet Teaching room. Update: due to technical problems with the SciNet Teaching room, this class will be moved to the SciNet Boardroom.
