**Term:** Fall 2023

**Course Objective:** This course provides a streamlined introduction to the physical and mathematical principles of quantum information processing. A variety of interdisciplinary topics will be covered from quantum mechanics, linear algebra, and computer science that collectively prepare the student for more advanced courses and research in quantum information science. Unlike traditional approaches to quantum mechanics, this course first introduces the concept of a qubit (or "quantum bit") and principles of finite-dimensional quantum systems before moving to the wave function and quantum particles in space.

**Prerequisite**: PHYS 214
