ECE 498 EC3 - Special Topics in ECE - Quantum Info Processing Theory

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in electrical and computer engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 0 to 4 undergraduate hours. 0 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Special Instructions:

This course introduces the basic concepts and principles of quantum computing and quantum communication theory. Roughly 20% of the course will be devoted to teaching the necessary mathematical tools of quantum information processing, 30% to quantum computing, 40% to quantum communication, and 10% to device-independent quantum information theory. The specific topics covered in this course are chosen to reflect areas of high interest within the research community over the past two decades. By the end of the semester, the student should be equipped with enough background and technical skill set to begin participating in quantum information research. Required: MATH 286 or introductory course in linear algebra. Recommended: ECE 487 or introductory course in quantum mechanics, ECE 313 or introductory course in probability/statistics.
