Of bits and qubits

Abstract:
There are a still many problems that require large computing power and memory. Factoring large integers, discrete logarithms, and modeling and simulating quantum systems are NP (Nondeterministic Polynomial time) problems that cannot be solved using a classical computer. The solution for these problems will be useful in areas such as development of secure communications, development of advanced processes (single atom doping) in the semiconductor industry, nanotechnology and spintronics (short form for spin-based electronics, which utilizes the spin of an electron). An understanding of quantum processes can also potentially lead to discovery of new phenomena in mesophysics and nanophysics, which, in turn, can aid the development of new devices.
