ABSTRACT:

In the last few years quantum computing has made significant progress in both theoretical development and physical implementation. In this talk, I'll try to explain quantum mechanics from a mathematics perspective, and then briefly introduce quantum algorithms, quantum communication, physical implementation, and potential industry. The talk assumes no knowledge of quantum physics.

 

BIOGRAPHY:

Shengyu Zhang obtained his bachelor degree in mathematics, Fudan University in 1999, master in computer science, Tsinghua University in 2002, and Ph.D. in computer science, Princeton University in 2006. After working in NEC Laboratories America as a summer intern and in California Institute of Technology for a two-year postdoc, he joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he is now an associate professor. His research interest lies in quantum computing, algorithm designing, and foundation of artificial intelligence. He is an editor of Theoretical Computer Science, and of International Journal of Quantum Information.
