Physical Representation of Quantum Computer

Even in quantum computers, many calculations are done using traditional circuits. What usually happens is that a bunch of calculations are done using traditional microprocessors and then there will be some hard algorithm that needs to run, things like prime factorisation or brute force search. There are the algorithms that …

Superposition in Quantum Computing

The concept of superposition is also used in quantum computing.

What is quantum computing?

In traditional computing, a bit can have a value of either zero or one. Quantum computing uses qubits (quantum bits). Qubits can have a certain probability to be zero or one. This is represented as α …
