- To understand the basic principles of the quantum formalism and their mathematical formulation in terms of linear algebra and matrix theory. To know how to apply them in the context of computation and of basic protocols of information processing.
- To understand the formulation of a quantum algorithm in the circuit model.
- To be familiar with the main quantum gates and the basic rudiments for their concatenation to give rise to universal computation.
- To understand the formulation of two basic quantum algorithms (Grover's and Shor's) and the computational advantage they provide with respect to classical models of computation for the problems of database search and factorization.
