Jesse Berwald's MT Peaks featured seminar, "Quantum Computing: A Brief Tour with Mathematical Highlights"
The race is on to build a quantum computer that provides a clear advantage over classical computers. A quantum computer is a specialized device that leverages the properties of quantum mechanics for computational purposes. Much of the noise surrounding quantum computing can seem like hype, but the achievements are solidly real and the devices steadily improve. Amidst the physical hardware challenges there are many deep and exciting mathematical avenues to explore. This tour will give a high-level overview of the field from a mathematical perspective.
After the hour presentation, there will be an hour (4-5:00pm) for questions and answers.
Dr. Jesse Berwald got a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Montana State University in 2011. After postdoctoral appointments at College of William and Mary and University of Minnesota, he entered the private sector in 2015.
