Quantum Computing for Programming Languages Researchers

or: I sort of understand quantum computing, and so can you!

This talk will introduce the basics of quantum computing for a PL audience, providing an entryway for POPL attendees to participate in PLanQC. The talk will present quantum programming concepts (qubits, superposition, entanglement, measurement, unitary transformations) as a simple imperative language using a probabilistic operational semantics. No prior knowledge of quantum computing is expected.
