This course teaches the fundamentals of Quantum Computing including the basics of Quantum Physics and Quantum Simulations. This course is divided into 4 modules
Quantum Computing Basics: This section deals with the introduction to the wonderful world of Quantum Computing. The comparison between a Classical Computer and a Quantum Computer are explained.
Quantum Physics Section: This section deals with the introduction to the astronomically tiny world of the physics phenomenon that support quantum computers. Concepts like SuperPosition, Quantum Entanglement, Quantum Tunnelling are covered in this section. Quantum Physics has a strong connection with mathematics. In this section, the quantum phenomenon are explained by avoiding a lot of the mathematical jargon aiming towards providing a good grasp over the fundamental concept.
Cirq: This section deals with using Google’s Cirq framework in Python to design Quantum Circuits. A simulator called Quirk is also used which uses Silicon Hardware to emulate a Quantum Processor
Dwave Leap: This sections covers the Signing-Up for the Dwave-Leap service which enables anyone to start using a real Quantum Computer to solve real world problems. This Quantum Annealer will also be used to solve a Graph-Optimization problem.
Combinatorial Optimisation: This section deals with a fundamental concept in the domain of combinatorial optimisation called as Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimisation (QUBO). QUBO is used to further formulate and solve problems like simulating the NOT gate on a Quantum Computer
Hope you have fun exploring the depths of Quantum Computing.
