Title: Quantum Circuits for Quantum State Tomography and Quantum Error-Correction

Abstract: In the theory of quantum information and computation, information is encoded in the state of a quantum system made up of multiple qubits. The state of an n-qubit system is mathematically represented as a 2^n-by-2^n density matrix and can be transformed to another state using 2^n-by-2^n unitary operators.  In this talk, I will give a short introduction on how to compose a quantum circuit for a given n-qubit unitary operator and present simple quantum circuits that can be used to perform experiments on quantum state tomography and quantum error-correction using the IBM quantum computers that can be accessed by the public through the cloud.
