Dear colleagues and students,

I wanted to pass along information regarding Quantum Computing seminar that will be resuming operations starting Monday Sept. 18. It will be held on **Mondays 12:30-1:30pm in EXPL 4106 this semester.**

Led by Prof. Fei Li (CS) in collaboration with myself and colleagues from QSEC, the seminar (in working group format) this semester will focus on going over the lecture notes on QC by Andrew Childs (UMD). Target audience are graduate students interested in learning quantum, as well as faculty who want to get an intuition of how quantum computing connects to familiar mathematical concepts. I wanted to stress that this semester the material will be very mathematical (relying mostly on linear algebra) and it is a good opportunity to jump on board.

Here are the preliminary notes you can review to get an idea on what to expect. The organizers will adjust the pace/level to the audience, so if you have interest in this topic you are welcome to attend. Please spread the word!
