2 Binary computing elements e.g. half-adder circuit any computer can be built from 2-bit logic gates ABC 001 011 101 110 A B C NAND A B D C ABCD 0000 0101 1001 1110 ABC 000 011 101 110 XOR A B C carry sum gates are not reversible: output does not define input HALF-ADDER

5 Thermodynamics of computation e.g. entropy thermodynamic quantities are associated with any physical storage of information 01 setting a binary bit reduces entropy by hence energy consumption reversible logic does not change ; no energy consumed if change is slow note that conventional logic gates consume

6 Quantum computing electronic or nuclear spin of atom or molecule each data bit corresponds to a single quantum property electronic state of atom or molecule polarization state of single photon vibrational or rotational quantum number e.g. electron spins in magnetic field gradient electromagnetic interactions between trapped ions lift degeneracies in radiative transitions 11 10 01 00 CNOT 0 0 1 1 1 E DCBA B A evolution described by Schrödinger’s equation operations carried out as Rabi -pulses

7 Quantum computing tiny, reversible quantum bits (qubits) for small, fast, low power computers complex wavefunctions may be superposed: 11 10 01 00 CNOT 0 0 1 1 1 E DCBA B A parallel processing: result is classical read-out: probabilistic results limited algorithms: factorization (encryption security) parallel searches (data processing)

8 Quantum computing extension of computing from real, binary numbers to complex, continuous values extension of error-correction algorithms from digital computers to analogue computers 11 10 01 00 CNOT 0 0 1 1 1 E DCBA B A link between numerical and physical manipulation extension of quantum mechanics to increasingly complex ensembles is quantum mechanics part of computation, or computation part of quantum mechanics? statistical properties (the measurement problem)
