## teaching by year

## NEAR-TERM QUANTUM COMPUTING

This lecture is an interdisciplinary (computer science, physics, mathematics) introduction to modern algorithmic challenges as they occur in the usage of near-term quantum computing hardware. After reviewing the basics of quantum computation and algorithms we will cover the limitation of current quantum computing hardware from a computer scientist’s point of view. Next, we will discuss algorithms for near-term quantum computers, before we turn to quantum compilation, i.e. algorithms for the optimal mapping of quantum algorithms to real quantum computers. Finally, we will cover the basics of quantum error correction and mitigation.

**Lecturer**: Dr. Tobias Stollenwerk**Host institution**: RWTH Aachen, Computer Science Department (Prof. Dr. Dominique Unruh)

## QUANTUM FIELD THEORY

In this course we introduce the basic concepts underlying the development of quantum field theory, and then present the theory for spin zero and spin one particles. Details include quantisation, and spontaneous symmetry breaking. The course might touch on spin one half particles, depending on progress.

**Lecturer****:** Dr. David Edward Bruschi **Assistants:** Tim Heib, Niklas Jung **Host institution:** Universität des Saarlandes
