Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 52
These lecture notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. These notes will also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED'. In addition to being a novel test bed for non-linear quantum optics of microwave electrical circuits which use superconducting qubits as artificial atoms, circuit QED offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.

We survey the growing field of Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity. Our aim is to provide a computer science-oriented introduction to the subject in order to help bridge the language barrier between computer scientists and physicists in the field.

These notes provide readers, who have some mathematical background but little exposure to quantum mechanics and quantum computation, with enough material to begin reading the research literature in quantum computation and quantum information theory.

Quantum walks is an advanced tool for building quantum algorithms that constitute a universal model of quantum computation. In this paper we review theoretical advances on the foundations of both discrete- and continuous-time quantum walks.
