Quantum computer gives answer when not running?Sounds interesting, but with phrases like "flirt with" and "quantum trick" it is not much on actual details. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20060224 10:40:12
Re: Quantum computer gives answer when not running?
Is that a joke? Computers don't produce errors, the people who programmed (and designed) them do. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #3 20060224 12:51:19
Re: Quantum computer gives answer when not running?
I think what they mean is that a bit won't be misread or a piece of hardware is less likely to fail. Something along those lines. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
