This lecture series on Quantum Integer Programming (QuIP) -- created by Professor Sridhar Tayur, David E. Bernal, and Dr. Davide Venturelli, a collaboration between CMU and USRA, with the support from Amazon Braket during Fall 2020 -- is intended for students and researchers interested in Integer Programming and the potential of near term quantum and quantum-inspired computing in solving optimization problems. Originally created for Tepper School of Business course 47-779 (at CMU), these were

Dr. Vikesh Siddhu, post-doc in CMU Quantum Computing Group, assisted during the lectures, student projects, and with proof-reading this scribe. Through these lectures one will learn to formulate a problem and map it to a Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization (QUBO) problem, understand various mapping and techniques like the Ising model, Graver Augmented Multiseed Algorithm (GAMA), Simulated or Quantum Annealing and QAOA, and ideas on how to solve these Integer problems using these quantum and classical methods.
