ABOUT THE COURSE
Quantum computing exploits the quantum mechanical nature of matter to simultaneously exist in multiple possible states. Building up on the digital binary logic of bits, quantum computing is built on the basis of interacting two-level quantum systems or ‘qubits’ that follow the laws of quantum mechanics. Addressability of the quantum system and its fragility to fidelity are the major issues of concern, which if addressed appropriately, will enable this new approach to revolutionize the present form of computing. After developing the basics, this course delves on various implementation aspects of quantum computing and quantum information processing.

D. Goswami works at the forefront of interdisciplinary research that embodies
theoretical and experimental developments in the fundamental aspects of
femtosecond laser-matter interactions for applications towards quantum
computing. After receiving undergraduate degree from IIT Kanpur, Dr. Goswami went
to US with multiple scholarships to receive his PhD
from Princeton University and completed his one-year postdoctoral Fellowship at
Harvard University in 1995. After several research jobs in US, he returned to India
in 1998 as a Faculty in TIFR (Mumbai). He moved to IIT Kanpur in 2004, where he
continues as the Professor of Chemistry. He is the
recipient of several academic and research accolades, including the Wellcome
Trust International Senior Research Fellowship (UK), the Swarnajayanti
Fellowship and the Thathachary Science Award (India). He is Fellow of the Royal
Society of Chemistry, as well as member of several academic and professional
societies and councils. He has published well over hundred peer-reviewed
research articles, several book chapters, edited conference proceedings and
books. His popularizes Science Education and is a popular K12 teacher on Indian
television. Over the past decade and
half, he has taught several courses both at UG and PG courses at TIFR and IIT
Kanpur. The course on Quantum Computing
was conceived and developed by Prof. Goswami as an open elective at IIT Kanpur
more than a decade back and he has taught it eight times since.
