About the Course

The course provides an introduction to quantum information at a beginning graduate level. It focuses on the fundamental understanding of how information is processed with quantum systems and how the quantum properties apply to computing and communication tasks. The course begins by presenting quantum theory as the framework of information processing. Quantum systems are introduced with single and two qubits. Axioms of quantum theory such as states, dynamics, and measurements are explained as preparation, evolution, and readout of qubits. Quantum computing and quantum communication are explained. Entanglement is identified as a key resource of quantum information processing. Manipulation and quantification of entangled states are provided.  Quantum information processing opens an avenue to new information technologies beyond the current limitations but, more importantly, provides an approach to understanding information processing at the most fundamental level. What is desired is to find how Nature performs information processing with the quantum and classical systems. The ultimate power of Nature in computing and communication may be found and understood. The course provides a modest step to learn quantum information about how physical systems can be manipulated by the laws of quantum mechanics, how powerful they are in practical applications, and how the fundamental results make quantum advantages....

Challenging quizzes and final exam; understanding solutions to problems boosts understanding of the topic. Many topics clearly, albeit rapidly, covered.Review with self-reading contextualizes material

G​ood material; it would be nice to have some example calculations. In some cases, the jump from general theory to concrete calculation in the exercises is a bit large.

I have some engineering/physics background but no formal training on quantum information. Am trying to understand more through self-learning.

Tried this course after going through some basic quantum computing books on qubits and gates. Found this to be useful to introduce deeper topics to me and push me to work out problems to learn some of these concepts.

Would have been nicer if Dr Bae could provide some reference answers or help in the forums as I'm still not confident that my understanding of problems was correct even though I passed the quizzes.

수업내용은 좋았고 양자에 대해 알게되다.

하지만 한국어 자막도 있으면 더 잘 이해하고 르게 이해할것같다.
