Who is the course for?

ポピュラーサイエンスレベルの量子コンピューティングに興味のある方、コンピューターの未来を知るために量子コンピューティングへの理解を深めたい高校生、大学生、コンピューター専門家にとって、このコースは役立つでしょう。
指数、ベクトル、正弦波、確率の基本的な概念に慣れることをお勧めします。いくつかの方程式が登場しますが、それらをできるだけ少なく、明解にするよう努めています。
数学がそこまで難しくなかったとしても、いくつかの概念は多くの受講者にとって新しいものであり、考え方の柔軟性が求められます。頭を動かす準備はいいですか?

Anyone interested in quantum computing at the “popular science” level.
High school students, college students, and computer professionals interested in developing a qualitative understanding of quantum computing in order to understand the future of computing will benefit.

We recommend that you be comfortable with exponents, vectors, sine waves and the basic concepts of probability. There are some equations, but we have endeavored to keep them as few and clear as possible.

While the mathematics is not too hard, some concepts will be new to most learners, and require some mental stretching. Be prepared to exercise your brain!

Who will you learn with?

Rodney Van Meter studied at Caltech, USC, and Keio. He has been working on quantum computing since 2003. He is the author of the book "Quantum Networking" (Wiley-ISTE, 2014).
