6.845 Quantum Complexity Theory


Class Info

Introduction to quantum computational complexity theory, the study of the fundamental capabilities and limitations of quantum computers. Topics include complexity classes, lower bounds, communication complexity, proofs and advice, and interactive proof systems in the quantum world; classical simulation of quantum circuits. The objective is to bring students to the research frontier.

This class has 6.045, 18.4041, and 18.435 as prerequisites.

6.845 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by Consult Department.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
