I already understand the abstractions of Quantum Computing (software), which includes qubits, interference, qubit entanglement, and circuits. However, despite being able to write Q# code that makes up a circuit, I don't have any understanding of the background math that supports Shor's Algorithm, Grover's Search, and algorithms as such.

However, what background knowledge do I need to understand the physics and math behind all these circuits? (as I can't fool myself to ignore my curiosity) In addition to understanding the physical hardware architecture of quantum computing to get into the computer "building" industry? I have taken Calculus 2 and Physics 1, what else?
