Quantum computation is one of the most exciting developments in the last decade to come out of the intersection of engineering, pure mathematics and quantum mechanics. This class will introduce participants to this exciting and rapidly developing field. The first hour will give an introduction to the necessary theory needed to understand quantum computation. The second hour will discuss the actual engineering problems involved with programming the real IBM Q5 Tenerifee Computer. No previous knowledge or experience with quantum computing is needed.
