Introduction to quantum algorithms

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: Sonya Berg, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Wed, Feb 11 2009, 12:10PM

This talk is an introduction to the mathematics of quantum computing. We'll discuss how quantum computing differs from classical computing, some interesting problems which hint to the potential strength of quantum computing, and some research problems about quantum computation of a Fourier transform on different algebraic structures.
