Unformatted text preview: February 17, 2005 Physics 681-481; CS 483: Discussion of #2 I. Constructing a spooky 2-qubit state We can write the state | Ψ i as | Ψ i = 1 √ 3 ( | 00 i + | 01 i + | 10 i ) = ( 1 ⊗ H )( q 2 3 | i| i + q 1 3 | 1 i H | i ) = ( 1 ⊗ H ) C H h ( q 2 3 | i + q 1 3 | 1 i ) | i i = ( 1 ⊗ H ) C H ( w ⊗ 1 ) | i| i , (1) where w is any one-qubit unitary transformation that takes | i into q 2 3 | i + q 1 3 | 1 i . To construct a controlled-Hadamard C H from a controlled-NOT C , note that the NOT operation X is just x · σ while the Hadamard transformation is H = 1 √ 2 ( X + Z ) = 1 √ 2 ( x + z ) · σ. It follows from Section A1 of the appendix to chapter 1 that H = uXu † , where u is the one-qubit unitary transformation associated with any rotation that takes x into 1 √ 2 ( x + z ). Since we also have 1 = u1u † , it follows that C H = ( 1 ⊗ u ) C ( 1 ⊗ u † ) . (2) So (1) reduces to the compact form | Ψ i = ( 1 ⊗ Hu ) C ( w ⊗ u † ) | i| i , (3) which produces the state | Ψ i by acting on...
