Hello all, I have come here to gather what the communities view is on the possibility of quantum computing in relation to the actual logic behind synchronous programming and the laws that (seem to) govern the quantum realm. Coming from a background in computer science, I have studied the basic fundamentals of how high and low level programming work. Many of the basic ideas of programming seem to contrast with the ideas of quantum physics. Here is the major problem I see with quantum programming: Synchronous Tasks - Programming works in steps; just a set of instructions to do one thing at a time. Say you were awaiting a value from one function before passing it off to another. This would involve time, now normally this wouldn't be an issue. However, in the quantum scale, wouldn't time be non existent? Unless we seemed to find the pattern in which information passes in an infinite number of cases that simulate time, I do not see this being possible. With that being said, quantum computing could only perform asynchronous operations. This would essentially allow for quantum computing, but not practical logical computing. So, is quantum programming really possible?
