Practical Quantum Computing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent publications suggest that quantum computing may have enormous advantages over the "classical" computation of the present day. For example, Shor has demonstrated that a quantum computer could, at least in principle, provide a remarkable advantage in the factoring of very large numbers. This paper reviews the fundamental requirements for a quantum computation system as well as some of the most important ideas involved in potential applications of such systems. Pioneering "practical" applications of quantum computation, primarily involving magnetic resonance will also be reviewed; possible advances in resonance based quantum computation will also be discussed
