Seminar "Quantum Computing"

In this seminar, you will have the chance to learn more about quantum computing. We particularly recommend this seminar as preparation for a thesis project in quantum computing or information.
If you are interested in participating in this seminar, please send an e-mail with your preferred topic to Lars Schlieper.

A basic understanding of quantum computing on the level of the BSc course “Quantenalgorithmen” offered by Prof. May.

Students participating in this course might also be interested in the Master's course "Quantum Information and Computation", which is also offered this summer semester.

To get credit points for this seminar, you will have to give a 60 minute talk (and also prepare a short handout with the key formulas). In addition, you are expected to participate (actively) in the seminar (“Präsenzpflicht”). The talk can be given in English or German. We are also happy if you would like to suggest your own topic, but please get in touch with us beforehand.

At least 2 weeks before your presentation, you will independently check in with your supervisor to show that you have understood the content. If there are any comprehension problems, they are to be resolved before this date, in consultation with your supervisor if necessary.

At least 1 week before your presentation, you will present your handout and presentation slides to your supervisor (if you are using any), as well as have your presentation already substantially completed.

Missing these deadlines without prior arrangement will result in failing the seminar.
