I'm taking a course that requires me to come up with a research project.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm officially in my sophomore year and I'm a Physics Major with a fairly broad exposure to electrical eng. and some advanced math courses.

That being said...

I'm very interested in computer simualtion of quantum gates and circuits. I have an idea already how to simulate classical gates: not, and, or and etc. I want to be able to develop it into a teaching tool.

My resources are a PC, Excel XP, and MathCad Professional.

My plan of attack is to use Excel to link the truth tables with a gif. and macros to tie everything together. I've seen it done with classical gates. I also have an excellent the text, Quantum Computing and Quantum Information

Can I realistically model a quantum gate operation using the above resources?

Thanks.
