Quantum Computing and Entanglement for Mathematicians

  title={Quantum Computing and Entanglement for Mathematicians},
  author={Nolan Wallach},
These notes are an expanded form of lectures to presented at the C.I.M.E. summer school in representation theory in Venice, June 2004. The sections of this article roughly follow the five lectures given. The first three lectures (sections) are meant to give an introduction to an audience of mathematicians (or mathematics graduate students) to quantum computing. No attempt is given to describe an implementation of a quantum computer (it is still not absolutely clear that any exist). There are… CONTINUE READING
