Course Description

In this seminar we will discuss quantum algorithms beyond Grover and Simon. It is aimed at students who have taken a first course in quantum computing, information, or similar, such as this one. We particularly recommend it as preparation for a thesis project in one of these areas.

The seminar will be run collaboratively between Bochum and Cologne, and we will encourage collaboration between these sites, as well as for CS students to team up with Physics students.
