CESG Seminar: Quantum Computers: Small and Large

February 4, 2014 @ 3:55 pm - 5:00 pm

Room 1034 Emerging Tech. Build. (ETB)
Dr. Andreas Klappenecker, Dept of CSE, TAMU

This talk gives a brief introduction to quantum computing, and discusses the algorithmic principles behind quantum computing. It will be briefly sketched how one might be able to build a large reliable distributed quantum computer from existing baby quantum computers.

Bio: Andreas Klappenecker is Professor and Graduate Adviser in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his Ph.D.
in Computer Science from the University of Karlsruhe (now called Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) in Germany in 1998. He joined Texas A&M University in 1999 as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics, and worked shortly as a Research Associate at the University of Karlsruhe before a joining the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University in 2000.

His research interests include the design and analysis of algorithms, in particular quantum algorithms, randomized algorithms, and dynamic distributed algorithms.
His research is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation.

Dr. Klappenecker received a National Science Foundation CAREER award and a TEES Select Young Faculty award in 2004, was named Halliburton Faculty Fellow in 2007, and Fellow-at-Largeof the Santa Fe Institute in 2000, and received highest distinction for his Ph.D. thesis. In 2005 he received an Undergraduate Faculty Teaching Excellence Award.
