Advanced Topics in Theory of Computing; Quantum Control, Metrology, and Error Mitigation for Quantum Algorithm Deployment (CMSC858V, Fall 2023)


Covers the fundamentals of quantum control and metrology in both digital and analog domains: design and calibration of quantum gates, analog quantum operations, quantum state preparation, and measurement; estimation, characterization, and mitigation of environmental noise; synthesis of logical quantum circuits to physical quantum circuits for agiven quantum hardware architecture. Connects quantum control and metrology tothe deployment of quantum algorithms on near-term quantum computers: superconducting qubits, ion trap qubits, and neutral atom qubits. We will review some of the most successful quantum algorithms deployed on real quantum hardware while focusing on the necessary classical and quantum error mitigation techniques.
