Quantum computing

I can lead one or two survey discussions on this topic. --Jshi (talk) 16:13, 19 November 2013 (EST)

  • I would love that! I wanted to take the class in the spring, but won't due to the clash with Approx - so would be a big supporter of that idea as well! --Df365 (talk) 22:55, 19 November 2013 (EST)
