Johannes Meyer: “Introduction to Variable Quantum Algorithms”

In this lecture, an intuitive understanding of qubits and quantum gates will be given first. Based on this, the differences to classical computing will be explained and the special properties of a quantum computer such as superposition, entanglement and decoherence will be discussed. These will be mirrored to limitations of current quantum hardware. Derived from this, the approach of variable quantum algorithms is explained and the applicability on current quantum hardware is demonstrated with an example.
