Student review
When we were going over the quantum algorithms, there were parts I had difficulty in understanding, but my mentor Daniel helped me better comprehend parts that require an advanced level of math. He did the same for other steps that I needed help with. The guidance Daniel provided was priceless, and after a few weeks I couldn't believe I was working on quantum algorithms that seemed impossible to understand at the beginning. I am very thankful for his mentorship and I could not expect a better experience!

Project description

Ahmet was interested in quantum mechanics and the new pathways it provides for performing computations. There are a wide range of problems wherein quantum approaches offer potential for solutions that classical machines could reach with greater difficulty. Ahmet's review paper offers a detailed breakdowns of the first introduced quantum algorithm Deutsch-Jozsa, and the first quantum algorithm proven to be faster than classical algorithms, Grover’s Algorithm. It also includes a side-by-side comparison of the quantum algorithms and its classical counterparts.
