Quantum computing is coming closer to reality, with 80+ bit machines in active use. This course provides an intuitive introduction to the impacts, underlying phenomenon, and programming principles that underlie quantum computing.

The course begins with an exploration of classes of computational problems that classical computers are not well-suited to solve. We then progress to an intuitive introduction to key QIS concepts that underlie quantum computing. Next, we introduce individual quantum operations, but with a symbolic representation and mathematical representation. A limited set of linear algebra operations will be taught so that students can calculate operation results. Finally, we string these individual operations together to create the first algorithm that illustrates the performance advantage resulting from these unique operations.

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners residing in one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
