Title: An Introduction to Quantum Algorithms

Abstract: Contrary to what you probably heard, quantum computers are not faster than classical computers. The power of quantum computing is that quantum algorithms demand fewer operations than classical algorithms. This makes quantum algorithms fundamental in quantum computing. We will introduce a touch of quantum mechanics, & then the basics of quantum computing. With that in hand, we move on to discuss several of the most important quantum algorithms. We conclude with some speculations about the future of quantum computing.

This lecture does not assume any physics or any mathematics beyond multiplying matrices.
