Abstract: Quantum computing technologies offer extremely fast and reliable solutions far beyond what can be done with classical computing methods by taking advantage of quantum mechanical phenomena such as entanglement, superposition, and annealing. One of the quantum computing techniques that has gained prominence in terms of development and potential applications at the intersection of physics, mathematics, and computer sciences with the aim of proving quantum supremacy and creating a universal quantum computer is digital quantum computing. In this method, circuits created utilizing quantum bits (also known as qubits) conduct fundamental calculations via quantum logic gates in a manner similar to that of classical digital circuits and computers. In this regard, the first part of the seminar will cover quantum logic gates after outlining the foundations of quantum mechanics and setting the stage for research on quantum computing. Basic quantum algorithms will be examined using the digital quantum computing method after creating circuit design examples as an illustration.
