Quantum information processing (QIP) is set to change computation and communication in a way incon¬ceivable by our classical perceptions. QIP derives its power, not from any revolutionary advances in the ex¬isting technologies, but the logical system based on quantum mechanical formalism. The quantum the-oretic concepts on which QIP stands are superposition and entanglement.
In this talk, we intend to explain the concept of superposition and entanglement by considering the ex¬amples of one and two spin-1/2 systems (binary systems). A better understanding of these two concepts for computer scientists to understand QIP.
