Quantum Computation and Error Protection: Fantasy and Myth
Department of Engineering and Applied Science
Wednesday, December 11, 2002 10:30-11:30,
There are many fantasies and myths associated with quantum
computing and quantum error correction. Some of these are associated
with the following questions. What would we really like to do with a
quantum computing device? What are the real requirements for a
quantum computer? How will we treat errors in practice? This talk will
present an introduction/overview of quantum computing based on these
questions and attempt to clarify the statements of the associated problems.
