|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||FIS/02|
The course is an introduction to quantum information and computation. The theorical part is followed by an applicative one aimed to show the more recent developments of the field.
There are no particular prerequisites for the mathematics and physics.
The mathematical tools needed will be introduced during the course.
Theoretical lectures supported by more applicative ones focused on the quantum computers languages (Qiskit by IBM, CIRQ by Google, Braket by Amazon)

The lectures will start according to the academic calendar
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The exam is composed by an oral examination and a home assignment.
In home assignment the student will be asked to solve a simple problem by writing a code for a quantum computer and he/she will be asked to write a short report.
