Computation and the Future of Mathematics

  You probably know Stephen Wolfram, but if you don’t he is the creator of the famous Mathematica suit of programs and the unique search engine Wolfram Alpha. He is a genius mathematician and he is contributing to the Quantum Computation field as well. This lecture from the University of Oxford is a great introdution …

Words of wisdom

I head this today on a lecture: ” Quantum computing is the power of 2 the N complex numbers working for you” I think it got it right on the nail.

Researchers show that relatively simple physical systems could yield powerful quantum computers

Quantum computers are devices—still largely theoretical—that could perform certain types of computations much faster than classical computers; one way they might do that is by exploiting “spin,” a property of tiny particles of matter. A “spin chain,” in turn, is a standard model that physicists use to describe systems of quantum particles, including some that …

Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, Probability Amplitudes and Quantum States

Probability Amplitures are at the core of Quantum Computing. This is the big difference between classical probability mathematics and quantum physics probabilities, it all lies on the Amplitude.   This is somehow a heavy lecture (this is a podcast) on the subject but well worth it.   From the source: In this series of physics lectures, …
