SQ NaJoPoMo 2017 - 14: Q is for Quantum

There are two Entries in the Q list https://www.h2g2.com/dna/h2g2/brunel/Index?submit=new&let=Q that consider Quantum matters.

The Quantum Mechanics Entry A781823 is from 2002 and gives a very good flavour of the subject and how it links in with Classical Mechanics. The maths bit gets quite technical - I can follow it, but it does introduce quite a few concepts as it goes along. Some useful descriptions, though - I have learned something from this, and could have done with knowing it in 2002 as it is a lot clearer than the information I was given at University...

The Quantum Computing Entry A1136350 from 2004 links to the Quantum Mechanics one and leads on well from there. A fascinating subject well described - I am presuming the world of Quantum Computing has moved on over the last decade, and I hope the Further Reading section will provide more information (but I shall need to check that later) smiley - ok

Nope - more broken links...

This link is interesting, though http://www.nature.com/news/quantum-computers-ready-to-leap-out-of-the-lab-in-2017-1.21239
