Are you ready to dive into the fascinating world of quantum computing? In this course, we will start with the foundation of quantum computing: the qubit. You will learn about qubit notation and the matrix representation, including vector notation and the famous Bloch sphere.
We will explore the essential single-qubit gates, such as the X gate, the Hadamard gate, Y gate, Z gate, S gate, and T gate, and their respective gate notations and matrix representations. You will also delve into the world of multiple qubit gates, such as the CNOT gate, CZ gate, Swap gate, and Toffoli gate, and their notations.
But what makes quantum computing so revolutionary is entanglement, and we will cover this topic in detail, including the concept of Bell’s state. And we will end our journey with superdense coding, the exciting concept of sending multiple classical bits of information using only one qubit.
Through a mix of theoretical and practical exercises using Qiskit, a popular quantum computing framework, you will gain the skills to start programming your own quantum applications. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts and tools needed to take the next step in the fascinating world of quantum computing. Get ready for an exciting adventure!
