Course objectives
Quantum computing in particular and quantum information processing in general are one of the hotest subjects in science in general and in informatics in particular. The goal of this introductory course is to present basic aims, concepts, methods and result in this fascinating area. After completing the course student will be able: to understand principles of the design of quantum algorithms; to understand basic ideas of Shor's and Grover's algorithms; to design simple quantum circuits; to understand recognition power of several quantum automata; to understand basic principles of quantum cryptography; to design quantum error-correcting codes.
