Quantum Computing

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur via YouTube


Quantum computing exploits the quantum mechanical nature of matter to simultaneously exist in multiple possible states. Building upon the digital binary logic of bits, quantum computing is built on the basis of interacting two-level quantum systems or ‘qubits’ that follow the laws of quantum mechanics. The addressability of the quantum system and its fragility to fidelity are the major issues of concern, which if addressed appropriately, will enable this new approach to revolutionize the present form of computing. After developing the basics, this course delves into various implementation aspects of quantum computing and quantum information processing.
