Two new Classes on QUANTUM COMPUTING were
developed at UC during the Academic Year 2003-2004.
Early 2002, several faculty members in the ECECS Dept. and Physics
Department at UC engaged in a joint venture to train undergraduate and
graduate students at UC in the rapidly burgeoning field of Quantum Computing.
The list of the faculty involved and a link to their website is given below.
One class on quantum computing has been
offered at UC ever since: ECES 622 (Introduction to Quantum Computing, also listed as PHYS-622)
in the Winter quarter. Sometimes, it is followed by ECES 753 (Special Topics in Quantum Computing,
also listed as PHYS-623).
Given below are links to several websites dealing with the topics of Quantum Computing.
If you have any comments about this website, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The faculty involved in the development of the classes are
M. Cahay (ECECS Dept) - phone: 64754
C. Purdy (ECECS Dept) - phone: 61810
G. Purdy (ECECS Dept) - phone: 61811
A. Ralescu (ECECS Dept) - phone: 64752
P. Esposito (Physics) - phone: 60636
P. Argyres (Physics) - phone: 60459
B. Goodman (Physics) - phone: 60537

!!!!!!!!!!CLASSROOM HAS BEEN SWITCHED TO BA 643 starting FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!
Homework 1. Due via email by Jan.13 by 5p.m
Now that you had a brief intro to the field of quantum computing,
choose ONLY ONE of the 14 topics (or another topic of interest) and do a web search
to find some new links on that topics. Upgrade the corresponding html file
to list the new sites and send me the copy of your new .html file.
I will then upload your .html file on my webpage.
Starting with hwk2 (see link below) you will work homeworks as a team. Considereing the large number
of students in the class, please form teams of 3 people and send me an email with the list
of the people and their email addresses as soon as possible. Keep the same team for all hwks or assigned
