This talk on Quantum Computing was held on Friday February 10, 2017 in MC 4045. The talk was given by Michael Pang.

## Abstract

Introduction to quantum computing. We start off by tackling a classical problem via deterministic and probabilistic computation and then motivate a quantum model of computation. Along the way we lay out some of the mathematics needed to describe quantum computation and how it corresponds to key concepts in quantum mechanics such as interference and superposition.
