Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information (CSSQI) (10th : 2010)

Adiabatic Quantum Computation Mohammad, Amin


In the first half of the day, adiabatic quantum computation (AQC) will be introduced as a universal scheme of quantum computation and an alternative to the gate model quantum computation. Adiabatic quantum optimization (AQO) will then be introduced as a subset of AQC, and its relation to quantum phase transitions will be discussed. The effect of noise on AQO using realistic environmental noise models will be discussed. We'll end with a presentation of the practical implementation of AQO using superconducting circuitry and some single-qubit and multi-qubit experimental results.
