Basic Notions: Dorit Aharonov - "Quantum computation"

Quantum computation
You can hardly open the newspaper nowadays without seeing something about Quantum computation. But aside from the hype and the industry interest, this deceivingly simple model offers a surprisingly rich set of mathematical, physical and conceptual questions, which seem to touch upon almost any area of mathematics: from group representations, to Markov chains, Knot invariants, expanders, cryptography, lattices, differential geometry, and many more.
I will give some definitions, provide some basic results, and sketch some open problems.
