Suppose [tex]\mathbf{U}_f(\left| x\right>\left| y\right> )=\left| x\right>\left| y\oplus f(x)\right>[/tex] denotes the unitary transformation corresponding to some 1-bit function f.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm guessing here that x is the input register, and y the output register.

Now suppose f(0)=0 and f(1)=0.

How is it that [tex]\mathbf{U}_f=\mathbf{1}[/tex] the 2-Qbit unit operator?
