IMA New Directions Short Course
Quantum Computation
August 15-26, 2005

  Organizers
Alexei KitaevCalifornia Institute of Technology
Peter ShorMassachusetts Institute of Technology
  Description

The course will begin with an introduction to quantum mechanics and quantum computation. Then it will pursue two tracks: quantum algorithms and error correction led by Peter Shor, and topological quantum computation, led by Alexei Kitaev. A typical day during the two weeks course will consist of two general lectures, one by the principal speakers in the morning, each one-and-a-half hours in duration. Afternoons will be used for topical lectures by guest speakers, and for problem solving and brain-storming sessions.
