In this section we will cover all the maths needed to learn how the quantum algorithms in this site work. If any of this maths (with the exception of Dirac notation) is new to you, I would recommend you read a more rigorous introduction to maths for quantum mechanics. Some recommended resources are:

Otherwise, remember that this section is a refresher focussed only on maths for quantum computing (not even quantum mechanics in general)!


  1. Dirac Notation and Basic Matrix Algebra
  2. Vectors & Matrices in Quantum Computing
