An Introduction to Quantum Computing and Quantum Annealing:

Dear Colleagues,



Everyone is welcome to attend the upcoming lecture series "An Introduction to Quantum Computing and Quantum Annealing." It will take place on May 9, 10, 13, and 14, from 12:00pm - 1:30pm in the TRIUMF Auditorium.



Olivia Di Matteo (TRIUMF) will cover the basics of gate model quantum computing, major quantum algorithms, and quantum annealing on the D-Wave. We'll also explore some applications in HEP, such as how to simulate neutrino oscillations, calculate ground state energies of molecules, and classify Higgs decay signals.



Prerequisites are quantum mechanics and linear algebra; no quantum computing experience required. Olivia will do some live demos with code and provide some small exercises, so bring your laptop if you'd like to follow along. (Software requirements are detailed in the syllabus: https://triumfoffice365-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/odimatteo_triumf_ca/EYSvpH-V5NpDoOCiuVigDaMBTd_bDRE1qyG9qWNB6-x_pw?e=M5c0Ih).



A light lunch will be provided from 11:30, with signup on a first-come first-serve basis for the first 50 registrants. Please register here before May 2nd:
