PHYS 446 - Advanced Computational Physics This is an immersive advanced computational physics course. The goals in this class are to program from scratch, simulate, and understand the physics within a series of multi-week projects spanning areas such as quantum computing (project 1 including quantum gates, and algorithms), statistical mechanics and the renormalization group (project 2 including the Ising model, phase transitions, numerical RG), machine learning (project 3 including Hopfield networks and energy-based models), and topological insulators (project 4 including tight-binding models, graphene, Chern-Insulators). Students will use C/C++ and python, among others, to complete their projects. The course approach (lectures, one-on-one interaction in class, etc.) is centered around giving you the information and skills you need to succeed in carrying out these projects. |

PHYS 498SQD - Superconductor Devices for QIS Superconductor materials and devices have emerged as key components of quantum sensors and qubits for quantum computing and quantum simulation. In this course, we will first cover the basic phenomena and physics of superconductivity and the still expanding range of superconducting materials. We will then explore the implementation of superconductors in Josephson devices and their applications in the exploration of quantum materials and as quantum detectors in astronomy and cosmology. This will all lead to a survey of the important role of superconductors in qubit architectures for quantum information science and technology. |
CS 598CTO - Quantum Cryptography We will understand how an adversary that breaks advanced protocols can be transformed into an adversary that contradicts basic mathematical assumptions. Our focus will be on understanding key ideas in cryptography research published over the last few years, and identifying new directions and problems for the future. |

MATH 595 - Quantum channels I: Representations and properties This course gives an introduction to the theory of quantum channels in the finite-dimensional setting of quantum information theory. We discuss the various mathematically equivalent representations of quantum channels, focus on some important subclasses of channels, and make connections to the theory of majorization and covariant channels. |
