Synopsis:

Course aims at giving students hands-on experience with quantum computers and their programming. We focus on fundaments of quantum mechanics, on which quantum technologies are based, and algorithms showing advantages and limitations of quantum computing. During tutorials students work in open-source software development kit Qiskit, which is based on Python language.

Knowledge of linear algebra at the level of BI-LA1 and BI-LA2 (or BI-LIN) is necessary. Previous completion of BI-MA2 or BI-VMM and experience with Python might be an advantage. No previous knowledge of physics is assumed.
