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 in the SciNet Teaching room, from 1:00-4:00pm.
