This subject introduces quantum computation, a model of computation based on the physical laws of quantum mechanics. Quantum computers outperform traditional computers for a range of practical problems, and in many cases offer drastic advantages. In this subject, students will learn about the basic tools for understanding quantum information processing. This knowledge will be applied to study the key quantum protocols: teleportation, superdense coding, and simple quantum algorithms. The students will be able to comprehend some of the key features of quantum theory which differentiate it from classical theory, including quantum entanglement and coherence.
