The end-point of this talk is the construction of a family of concrete quantum circuits, designed to perform a specific task. However, the substance of this talk is the processes which lead to this construction, rather than the construction itself. This is in order to make the case that tools from traditional theoretical computer science are relevant and applicable to the theory and practice of quantum computing. More generally, the aim is to show that theoretical abstract tools can also have very concrete applications.

The tools used include category theory, domain theory, and algebraic program semantics. Background and historical context is also explored, from the perspective of both quantum computing and theoretical computer science.

Given the focus of the talk, no in-depth knowledge of quantum computing will be assumed. The talk is aimed at people with an interest in theoretical computer science who are also interested in wider applications.

This talk is part of the Theoretical computer science seminar series.
