Quantum computing by its origin is a rather abstract discipline, a branch of math or information science. It has emerged from a persistent search for more efficient ways to process information when quantum mechanics made it to the scope of the search. Being an abstract discipline, quantum computing approximates a physical quantum system with a number of axioms and explores the consequences of these axioms, precisely as conventional math has been. These activities begun in the 1970s, and for a long time it was not obvious why quantum calculational ...
