Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Recent technological innovations have led to the paradigm shift from classical to quantum in the world of materials science. Along with this paradigm shift, a new framework based on quantum mechanics has also emerged in the field of information science, namely, quantum information science. This course is designed to provide classes on the emerging field of quantum information, which integrates both information and materials sciences.
