Quantum computing

  1. May 3, 2005 #1
    What is a quatum computer in short ? what does it look like ?
    Can it be as fast as a present super computer ?

    Another, beside crypto, what can quantum algorithms do ? Can they do something good like genetic algorithms ? :redface:

    Your question should be just the opposite. And the answer is NO.

    Nothing like what most people have in mind, as far as a computer. Oh and only the most elementary experimental ones that contain around 4 qubits, maybe more, have been produced. As far as I know.

    It depends on polynomial time.
