Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science University of Central Florida COT 6600– Quantum Computing Fall 2010 (dcm) Homework Assignment 3. – Due Monday, October 26, 2010. Problem 1 (20 points) A linear operator A is said to be normal if it commutes with its adjoint [ A,A ] = 0. Let | φ a i be an eigenvector of A , A | φ a i = a | φ a i . 1) Show that Hermitian and unitary operators are “normal”. 2) Given that A | φ a i = a * | φ a i show that any two eigenvectors | φ a 1 i and | φ a 2 i of A where a 1 6 = a 2 , must be orthogonal, i.e., h φ a 1 | φ a 2 i = 0. Problem 2 (20 points) Given the state vector of a system of two qubits: | ψ i = 1 3 ( | 00 i + | 01 i + | 10 i ) calculate the new state | φ i of the system obtained after two Hadamard transformations: | φ i = ( H H ) | ψ i with the Hadamard operator: H = 1 2 ± 1 1 1
