I'm taking a course that requires me to come up with a research project. 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.
