The three modules comprise:
- 8.371.1x: Quantum states, noise and error correction
- 8.371.2x: Efficient quantum computing - fault tolerance and algorithms
- 8.371.3x: Quantum complexity theory and information theory
A prior course (or strong background) in quantum mechanics is required. Knowledge of linear algebra is also strongly recommended, and other helpful math topics to know include probability and finite fields.
This course has been authored by one or more members of the Faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Its educational objectives, methods, assessments, and the selection and presentation of its content are solely the responsibility of MIT.
