Drc students
DRC Students

  • If any student in the class requires a special accommodation for test taking or other assignment, please contact me

    • In person, or via email, [email protected]

    • If you don’t contact me, I will not know you need this accommodation

    • The DRC office no longer sends notifications out about this


Homework 2
Homework #2

  • Due in class on Wednesday

  • http://www.soe.ucsc.edu/classes/cmps010/Spring11/

  • A series of questions asking you to create class models for different physical world situations (shown in photographs)

    • These are similar to the examples we have done in class

  • Other questions asking you to perform operations on basic data structures

    • E.g., push and pop on a stack; enqueue and dequeue on a queue

    • These are similar to examples shown in class notes

  • Help section

    • Tuesday, 3-5pm, Engineering 2, room 307

    • Drop-in help on this homework assignment


Please see me
Please see me

  • Would the following students please see me at the end of class

    • I need email addresses to add to eCommons

    • Katherine Kupis

    • Ileena Mitra

    • Thank you!

Quantum Computing

  • Instead of performing computation using bits (1 or 0), quantum computers use qubits (quantum bits)

    • A qubit can be a 0, a 1, or a superposition of both

    • I.e., it can represent multiple states simultaneously

  • Quantum algorithms have the potential to solve many complex problems much more quickly than traditional computation

    • Integer factorization

      • If possible for large numbers would defeat some cryptographic systems in current use (but not all)

    • Modeling physical and chemical systems

    • Especially modeling of quantum systems

  • A quantum computer is unable to solve problems that a Turing-compatible system can’t solve

    • So, only provides a speedup, not an improvement in what is computable

  • Suzanne Gildert talk on Quantum Computing
