## Main Question or Discussion Point

How significant is this development of a 5 qubit computer by IBM?

See,

"IBM invites users to test its quantum computer"

"How IBM’s new five-qubit universal quantum computer works"

at http://arstechnica.com/science/2016/05/how-ibms-new-five-qubit-universal-quantum-computer-works/

What would be a good math problem for a 5 qubit computer that would really show its power over a regular computer granted it is only 5 qubits computer?

Thanks!
