QUANTUM COMPUTING

The main objective of this course is to provide an overview of the interdisciplinary field of Quantum Computing and demystify the concept of quantum while linking it to computation and information science. It is aimed to bring out the concepts of quantum mechanics through linear algebra and matrix manipulation, which connects it to conventional computer science. The main advantages of quantum computing are demonstrated through reversibility and parallel processing while the difficulties in implementation and alghorithm development are treated with care.
