Course Feedback opens

This course will provide an introduction to the theory, formalisms and algorithms of quantum computing.  The programming language will be Python; experience with Python will be assumed.  Experience with quantum mechanics is not necessary; an introductory-level understanding of linear algebra will be assumed.  The PennyLane quantum-computing programming framework (installation instructions here), provided by Xanadu, will be used.  No experience with quantum computing will be expected.  Classes will be held, July 25, 27, 29, 12:30-3:30pm, in the SciNet Teaching room. Update: due to technical problems with the SciNet Teaching room, this class will be moved to the SciNet Boardroom.

MSC1090: Lecture 1

The goal of this course is to prepare graduate students to perform scientific data analysis using the R programming language.  Successful students will learn how to use statistical inference and machine-learning tools to gain insight into data sets, as well as be introduced to techniques and best practises for storing, managing and analyzing data.  Topics will include: R programming, version control, modular programming, coding best practices, data analysis, machine learning and scientific visualization.
Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00-10:30am, in GB244 and BL205, respectively.
Students willing to take the course as part of their graduate program must enrol through Acorn.  This course is part of the IMS graduate program.

Container Computing with Apptainer

Container computing is gradually changing the way researchers are developing, sharing, and running software applications. Apptainer (formerly called Singularity) is gaining popularity in HPC for its performance, ease of use, portability,  and security. In this course, we will explore: what is a container, why use a container, and how to use and create one.Format: On-line (Zoom).
