Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science University of Central Florida COT 6600– Quantum Computing Fall 2010 (dcm) Homework Assignment 2. – Due Wednesday November 5, 2008. Problem 1 (30 points) Prove the following properties of a tensor product: A ( B C ) = ( A B ) C ( A B ) = B A ( A · A 0 ) ( B · B 0 ) = ( A B ) · ( A 0 B 0 ) where A,A 0 ,B,B 0 and C are matrices of appropriate sizes and A · B denotes the product of matrices A and B and A B their tensor product. Problem 2 (10 points) Show that unitary matrices preserve inner products and thus they preserve norms. If U is a unitary matrix then: V,V 0 C n = ( UV,UV 0 ) = ( V,V 0 ) and V, C n = ⇒ | UV | = | V
