Our latest paper: “Factorization and criticality in finite interacting spin systems under a nonuniform magnetic field”
Our latest paper just got published by Physical Review Letter! Let me briefly explain what our manuscript is about: Factorization and criticality in finite interacting spin systems under a nonuniform magnetic field Exact ground states of strongly interacting spin … Continue reading

Why we should be talking about the ethics of quantum computation
Gyges was a shepherd in the service of the king of Lydia; there was a great storm, and an earthquake made an opening in the earth at the place where he was feeding his flock. Amazed at the sight, he … Continue reading
Steven Weinberg on density matrix formalism
Just a friendly reminder as to why the density matrix formalism is so important and why it should be thought along side the state vector formalism. Nothing that is done in one system can instantaneously affect the density matrix of … Continue reading
The More You Know: Quantum Simulator
A Quantum Simulator is a controllable quantum mechanical system than can be used to study more complex quantum system that cannot be directly studied nor simulated by any classical computer. One of the most important consequences of the existence of … Continue reading
Tools for Drawing Quantum Circuits
Last night I was writing an article for the series “The more You Know” to add to my Dictionary of Quantum Information and Quantum Computation and I ran across the need to draw a Quantum Circuit. Although my first thought was … Continue reading
The More You Know: Quantum Circuit
Quantum Circuits are used to visualize a prescription of quantum gates acting on a quantum state. They describe the changes of the quantum data as it undergoes successive discrete operations. The data in a Quantum Circuit is usually encoded in a qubit state (other Quantum Circuit … Continue reading

The More You Know: Bell States/EPR Pairs
Bell States (named after John S. Bell) or EPR pairs (after Einsetin, Podolski and Rosen Paradox) are the maximally entangled quantum states of a two qubit system (i.e. a quantum mechanical system composed of two interacting twolevel subsystems). In the computational basis the four … Continue reading

The More You Know: Bloch Sphere
The Bloch Sphere is a useful geometrical representation of the state of a Qubit or any other two level quantum system. As discussed in this article an arbitrary pure state of a Qubit can be expressed in the computational basis as … Continue reading

The More You Know: Qubit
A Qubit, or quantum bit is the fundamental unit of quantum information, it is a mathematical concept satisfying particular properties. The Qubit is the quantum counterpart of the classical bit. A classical bit can be in one of two different states: 0 … Continue reading
