This interdisciplinary course is targeted towards undergraduates in computer science, physics, and math. It is designed to allow students to gain familiarity with principles across the full quantum computing stack so that they have some background should they wish to get up to speed on cutting-edge developments in the field. No prerequisites necessary; if you would like suggested reading material, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The quantum computing “stack" consists of:
-Quantum devices and materials
-Quantum computer architecture
-Quantum programming languages and compilation
-Quantum information and algorithms
-Applications (e.g. chemistry, machine learning, finance)
-Key players and funding sources
The course is designed to give many opportunities for (and require for earning 2 units) students to present in-class, which is very CCS-esque.
This is a student-led colloquium led by Lia Yeh under the supervision of Dave Patterson.
