Unformatted text preview: February 16, 2006 Physics 681481; CS 483: Discussion of #2 I. Constructing a spooky 2Qbit state We can write the state  i as  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 oneQbit unitary transformation that takes  i into q 2 3  i + q 1 3  1 i . To construct a controlledHadamard C H from a controlledNOT C , note that the NOT operation X is x while the Hadamard transformation is H = 1 2 ( X + Z ) = 1 2 ( x + z ) . It follows from Section A2 of the appendix to chapter 1 that H = uXu , (2) where u is the oneQbit unitary transformation associated with any rotation that takes x into 1 2 ( x + z ). Since we also have 1 = uu , it follows that C H = ( 1 u ) C ( 1 u ) . (3) So (1) reduces to the compact form  i = ( 1 Hu ) C ( w u )  i i , (4) which produces the state...
