Topological Quantum Computation

Teacher :Babak Haghighat
Schedule: Every Mon. & Wed. 9:50-11:25 2021-9-13 ~ 12-3
Venue:Conference Room 1, Jin Chun Yuan West Bldg.


In this course, I present a self-consistent review of topological fault-tolerant quantum computation using the surface code. The course covers everything required to understand topological fault-tolerant quantum computation, ranging from the definition of the surface code to topological quantum error correction and topological operations on the surface code. In the process, basic concepts and powerful tools, such as universal quantum computation, quantum algorithms, stabilizer formalism, and measurement-based quantum computation, are also introduced. Moreover, a quantum algorithm for approximating the Jones polynomial is introduced and the circuit-based model is covered, where topological diagrams are used to express the logical operations of topological quantum computation diagrammatically.


This course will be presented on line at first week.There's no course arranged on Sep.18
