Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One can describe a pure qubit in two ways (onto the bloch-sphere): 1.) one take a ([tex]\alpha,\beta[/tex]) , where [tex]\alpha,\beta[/tex] are complex numbers and [tex]\left|\alpha\right|^{2}+\left|\beta\right|^{2}=1[/tex]. 2.) with a real 3-dimensional unit vector.

Bob wants that Alice generate one million random ([tex]\alpha,\beta[/tex]) qubit to him. Alice generates rather one million real unit vectors and after this she enumerates this unit vectors to ([tex]\alpha,\beta[/tex]) one by one.

My question is: Did Alice fulfill Bob's demand? Are Bob going to accept Bob's qubits..?
