2 Quantum Computing In a quantum system the amount of parallelism increases exponentially with the size of the system. Access to the results disturbs the quantum state through a process called decoherence . Qubit – a unit vector in a 2-dimensional complex space where a complex base has been chosen.
3 Classical mechanics The individual states of particles combine through the cartesian product. If X and Y are vectors the vector product has dimension dim(X) + dim(Y). Given a system of n particles the states of the system form a vector space with 2 x n dimensions. Given n bits we can construct 2 n n-tuples and describe a system with 2 n states.

4 Quantum mechanics The individual states of particles combine through the tensor product. If X and Y are vectors the vector product has dimension dim(X) x dim(Y). Given a system of n particles the states of the system form a vector space with 2 n dimensions. The extra states that do not have a classical analogy are called entangled states .
5 Quantum mechanics (cond’t) A quantum bit can be in infinitely many superposition states. When the qubit is measured the measurement changes the state of the particle to one of the two basic states, thus from a qubit we can only extract a clasical bit of information. Example – the use of polarized light to transmit information.

7 Polarized light A photon’s polarized state can be modeled as a unit vector and expresses as a combination of two basis vectors. There are infinitely many possible orientations of the unit vector a qubit can be in infinitely many superposition states.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
