Quantum Computer Science

 On Mathematics, Computer Science & Quantum Computation

Quantum Information, the final frontier.
These are the voyages of the CFRCE crew,
Their two day mission,
To explore strange ever-new worlds,
To seek the foundations of mathematics, computer science and the quantum,
And to boldly inspire students to go where no one has gone before…

What have prime numbers to do with your credit card? What has number theory to do with computer science? Is it possible to teleport objects? What has quantum mechanics to do with computing? What indeed is a quantum computer? What happens if you can build it? How could it transform forever the world of information?

When you look around, what do you see? You see something or you see nothing. That something you call matter and that nothing you call space. And yet, that something is an it and that nothing is a bit. That something is matter and that nothing is, well, information.  And yet further, it is a bit. Yes, the "it" or matter is built of the "bit" or information. In a sense this is all that one needs to know, the rest are details. For, a sufficiently creative mathematician, physicist or computer scientist could build up everything from the bit or information. Information and not space, as star trek would have it, truly is the final frontier. And it is no small wonder that the present era is dominated by information science and  technology.

And all these tremendous revolutionary developments emerged from one of an innocent series of fabulous problems posed by the great German Mathematician David Hilbert. Now known as the Hilbert Problems.

Hilbert posed an unsolved problem in almost innocent sounding phrases: He asked, "Does there exist an universal  algorithm to determine if a statement is true in all models of a theory?"

This unleashed a chain of enormously significant developments in mathematics, physics and computer science that were further fueled by the mathematicians Bertrand Russel and A N Whitehead, Kurt Godel, John Von Neumann, Norbert Wiener, Alan Turing and of course, Claude Shannon. But perhaps more than anyone else, it was Claude Shannon who nailed the it to the bit. Shannon did to information what Galileo and Newton did to matter. He quantified it into a measurable entity, the bit as did Galileo and Newton quantified matter into mass. The bit then is the measure of  information, the pre-final frontier.

And then came Quantum Theory into the world of computation and information. This fusion of mathematics, computer science and quantum theory has presently given rise to the intellectually exciting, challenging and prospective interdisciplinary field known as Quantum Computation and Quantum Information. Needless to say, this could possibly be concretized in the form of the most modern computer ever, the Quantum Computer. Thus, Quantum Computer Science is indeed the final frontier.

The CFRCE Advanced Workshop on Quantum Computer Science opens up a window of opportunity to keen young inquiring high school students in their 9th to 12th grades. Starting from a review of basic physics and mathematics, it exposes them to a conceptual and mathematical perspective of Quantum Computer Science. It is perhaps the most powerful springboard for students to catch up on the technical theoretical underpinnings of this irresistibly fascinating, state-of-the-art, cutting edge topic in modern science and technology.

The only prerequisites for this Advanced Workshop is knowledge of basic Physics, Precalculus, Calculus and that indispensable quality - intellectual curiosity, and a sense of adventure on the part of the student. The mathematics of Computer Science, and Quantum Information will be sketched and featured  in course of the workshop paving the way for an understanding and appreciation of Quantum Computer Science.
