  1. Quantum Computing Lecture on Linear Algebra Sources:Angela Antoniu, Bulitko, Rezania, Chuang, Nielsen

  2. Introduction to Quantum Mechanics • This can be found in Marinescu and in Chuang and Nielsen • Objective • To introduce all of the fundamental principles of Quantum mechanics • Quantum mechanics • The most realistic known description of the world • The basis for quantum computing and quantum information • Why Linear Algebra? • LA is the prerequisite for understanding Quantum Mechanics • What is Linear Algebra? • … is the study of vector spaces… and of • linear operations on those vector spaces

  3. Linear algebra -Lecture objectives • Review basic concepts from Linear Algebra: • Complex numbers • Vector Spaces and Vector Subspaces • Linear Independence and Bases Vectors • Linear Operators • Pauli matrices • Inner (dot) product, outer product, tensor product • Eigenvalues, eigenvectors, Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) • Describe the standard notations (the Dirac notations) adopted for these concepts in the study of Quantum mechanics • … which, in the next lecture, will allow us to study the main topic of the Chapter: the postulates of quantum mechanics

  4. Review: Complex numbers • A complex numberisof the form where and i2=-1 • Polar representation • With the modulus or magnitude • And the phase • Complex conjugate

  5. Review: The Complex Number System • Another definitions: It is the extension of the real number system via closure under exponentiation. • (Complex) conjugate: c* = (a + bi)*  (a bi) • Magnitude or absolute value: |c|2= c*c =a2+b2 The “imaginary”unit +i c b  + a “Real” axis “Imaginary”axis i

  6. Review: Complex Exponentiation • Powers of i are complex units: • Note: ei/2 = i ei= 1 e3 i/2 =  i e2 i= e0 = 1 ei +i  1 +1 i Z1=2 e i Z12 = (2 e i)2 = 2 2 (ei)2= 4 (e i )2 = 4 e 2i 2 4

  7. Recall: What is a qubit? • A qubit has two possible states • Unlike bits, a qubit can be in a state other than • We can form linear combinations of states • A qubit state is a unit vector in a two-dimensionalcomplex vector space

  8. Properties of Qubits • Qubits are computational basis states - orthonormal basis - we cannot examine a qubit to determine its quantum state - A measurement yields

  9. (Abstract) Vector Spaces • A concept from linear algebra. • A vector space, in the abstract, is any set of objects that can be combined like vectors, i.e.: • you can add them • addition is associative & commutative • identity law holds for addition to zero vector 0 • you can multiply them by scalars (incl. 1) • associative, commutative, and distributive laws hold • Note: There is no inherent basis (set of axes) • the vectors themselves are the fundamental objects • rather than being just lists of coordinates

  10. Vectors • Characteristics: • Modulus (or magnitude) • Orientation • Matrix representation of a vector Operations on vectors This is adjoint, transpose and next conjugate

  11. Vector Space, definition: • A vector space (of dimension n) is a set of n vectors satisfying the following axioms (rules): • Addition: add any two vectors and pertaining to a vector space, say Cn,obtain a vector, the sum, with the properties : • Commutative: • Associative: • Any has a zero vector (called the origin): • To every in Cncorresponds a unique vector - v such as • Scalar multiplication:  next slide Operations on vectors

  12. Vector Space (cont) • Scalar multiplication: for any scalar • Multiplication by scalars is Associative: distributive with respect to vector addition: • Multiplication by vectors is distributive with respect to scalar addition: • A Vector subspace in an n-dimensional vector space is a non-empty subset of vectors satisfying the same axioms in such way that Operations on vectors

  13. Hilbert spaces • A Hilbert space is a vector space in which the scalars are complex numbers, with an inner product (dot product) operation  : H×H  C • Definition of inner product: xy = (yx)* (* = complex conjugate) xx  0 xx= 0 if and only if x = 0 xy is linear, under scalar multiplication and vector addition within both x and y Black dot is an inner product “Component”picture: y Another notation often used: x xy/|x| “bracket”

  14. Vector Representation of States • Let S={s0, s1, …} be a maximal set of distinguishable states, indexed by i. • The basis vector vi identified with the ith such state can be represented as a list of numbers: s0s1s2si-1si si+1 vi = (0, 0, 0, …, 0, 1, 0, … ) • Arbitrary vectors v in the Hilbert space can then be defined by linear combinations of the vi: • And the inner product is given by:

  15. Dirac’s Ket Notation You havr to be familiar with these three notations • Note: The inner productdefinition is the same as thematrix product of x, as aconjugated row vector, timesy, as a normal column vector. • This leads to the definition, for state s, of: • The “bra” s| means the row matrix [c0* c1* …] • The “ket” |s means the column matrix  • The adjoint operator† takes any matrix Mto its conjugate transpose M†MT*, sos| can be defined as |s†, and xy = x†y. “Bracket”

  19. Spanning Set and Basis vectors • Or SPANNING SET for Cn: any set of n vectors such that any vector in the vector space Cn can be written using the n base vectors • Example for C2 (n=2): Spanning set is a set of all such vectors for any alpha and beta which is a linear combination of the 2-dimensionalbasis vectors and

  33. Outer Products of vectors |u> <v| is an outer product of |u> and |v> |u> is from U, |v> is from V. |u><v| is a map V U We will illustrate how this can be used formally to create unitary and other matrices
