Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is the study of a non-classical model of computation. Whereas a classical computer encodes data into fundamental units called bits, where each bit represents either a one or a zero, a quantum computer encodes data into bits that can represent a one, a zero, or some combination. The combination is known as a quantum superposition, and bits with these quantum properties are known as qubits. This is in contrast to classical computers which perform computations that never deviate from clearly defined values. Another defining aspect of a quantum computer is the ability to link qubits together with quantum entanglement. Taken together, these and other properties of a quantum computer may allow them to perform operations on qubits which include computational speed and possibilities not available to classical computers.
