Quantum information/computers

  1. Feb 16, 2007 #1

    Is anyone here involved in this, or doing their grad work in this area? I was wondering how similar it is to actual computer science. I'm currently a Physics major and was interested in this field of study, but I really dislike computer science (not writing code, just the theory of it all).

    My thesis advisor is a researcher in quantum information. I think he is an expert in matrices and applid algebra. His research mainly focus on factorisation of matrices. I also audited his quantum information class, and it was nothing about matrices manipulation.

    so it doesnt involve any coding or algorithims or anything like that?

    that was like a survey class. Moreover, it was purely mathematical, with no computer coding at all.
