Knowledge and understanding:
The aim of this course is to provide the basic theoretical knowledge on several aspects in quantum magnetism and the basic notions of quantum computation. The most important physical theories will be studied in terms of logical and mathematical structure, of experimental evidences and physical phenomena.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
The student will achieve the capability to apply these notions to analyze magnetic phenomena and interpret them on the basis of the mathematical formulation of the physical laws. In addition, the student will obtain basic competences in quantum computation.
By the end of the course, the student should be able to understand the physical phenomena related to quantum magnetism and quantum information.
The student must be able to clearly present the basic concepts of quantum magnetism and their consequences on observable phenomena. In addition, he must be able to discuss the basic concepts underlying quantum computation.
