I have no idea how a quantum computer works. The quantum computer evidently exploits the laws of MQ, and therefore the post could be interesting. There are 2 difficulties, for my comprehension.

The first is that MQ works on a statistical basis, and it is not clear how a quantum system can function as a deterministic machine.

The second difficulty is trivially simple: explain how the quantum computer performs the 1 + 1 operation. Well, thinking about it I came to the following purely speculative conclusions: It is true that the QM works on statistical bases, but as has been said to the point of nausea, it produces results of extreme accuracy. So we can not see how, even in this case, the quantum computer can not behave like a real machine of incredible precision.

In no article I have read it explains how the quantum computer does 1 + 1. In reality we climb on the explanation of entaglement effects, overlap of states etc etc. concluding that the quantum computer is able to handle extremely large numbers, almost as if the quantum computer is unable to perform too simple calculations! So we would have a sort of paradox: the quantum computer in order to work well needs to perform very complex calculations. Given its statistical base, such calculations would be as accurate as complex, to the point that if it did 1 + 1, the result would be wrong for too much simplicity !!
