A Study on the Basics of Quantum Computing

L. Keerthana


The main purpose of this paper is to describe about quantum computing and to examine some of its applications and to describe its limitation. Quantum theory is one of the most successful theories that have influenced the course of scientific progress during the twentieth century. It has presented a new line of scientific thought, predicted entirely inconceivable situations and influenced several domains of modern technologies.
