DESCRIPTION:\n\nAnnotation\n\nQuantum computers are based on a completely
different principle than classical computers. The aim of this course is to
explain this difference by showing how basic quantum computing algorithms
work in practice. It is focused on the theoretical foundations\, mathemat
ical description\, and practical testing of the resulting quantum circuits
on real quantum computers and their simulators in the Qiskit environment.
\n\nAs this field has been undergoing hectic progress recently\, new resea
rch results are constantly being published. It is impossible to cover all
these new developments in a short-term course\, so this course contains ju
st the fundamentals. \n\nOn the first day\, there will be a brief introdu
ction and clarification of quantum entanglement along with examples of its
applications (e.g. quantum teleportation).\n\nThe second day will include
an explanation of the principle of quantum superposition and its implemen
tation in several quantum algorithms (Bernstein-Vazirani\, Deutsch-Jozsa\,
Simon's\, and Grover's). \n\nFinally\, on the third day\, the quantum Fo
urier transform and practical examples of its use will be presented (quant
um phase estimation\, Shor's algorithm).\n\nBenefits for the attendees\, w
hat will they learn\n\nBy the end of this course\, participants should und
erstand:\n\n\n Why quantum computers can solve the problem of exponential
complexity in less than exponential time.\n The difference between quantum
natural parallelism and parallel programming on HPC.\n How to create diff
erent kinds of quantum entanglement of two or more qubits.\n What the prin
ciple of quantum teleportation is based on. \n What are the advantages of
quantum teleportation in terms of data transmission security.\n What the
quantum superposition is and how it is used by particular algorithms.\n Wh
at the quantum Fourier transform can be used for.\n How to mathematically
derive quantum states anywhere in a quantum circuit and thus theoretically
verify its functionality.\n How to design a specific quantum circuit base
d on a quantum algorithm.\n How to test a quantum circuit on a quantum com
puter or simulator in the Qiskit environment.\n\n\nLevel\n\nbeginner\, int
ermediate\n\nLanguage\n\nEnglish\n\nPrerequisites\n\nBasic knowledge of li
near algebra\, complex numbers\, Python programming basics\, Qiskit accou
nt\, and (last but not least) a great imagination\, because in the quantu
m world\, many things are very different.\n\nTutor\n\nJiří Tomčala is a
researcher at IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center. He graduated
with a degree in Applied Mathematics in 2016 and earned his Ph.D. in Comp
uter Science in 2021. In the years 2021 and 2022\, he received two times
the Certificate of Quantum Excellence from IBM Quantum and participated as
a mentor for quantum computing projects in the PRACE Summer of HPC 2021 a
nd 2022. He is an active researcher in the field of quantum computing and
regularly contributes his latest results to scientific conferences.\n\nAck
