Applied Math researchers discover necessary ingredient for Quantum Computing

Thursday, June 12, 2014

A team from the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, including Applied Math professor Joseph Emerson and former graduate student Victor Veitch, has made an important breakthrough in the area of quantum computing. In a paper published in the journal Nature, the authors show that a strange property of quantum theory known as contextuality is a necessary ingredient for building a quantum computer. More information on this study can be found in a University news article.
