ICE1 2014 Workshop “Información Cuántca en España-1” - Zaragoza, 2014

Primes go Quantum

Prime numbers are the building blocks of Arithmetics and therefore classical objects. However, they can be treated as quantum objects by superposing them in the computational basis of a quantum computer. In this talk we shall apply quantum information tools to create the Prime state, and to  quantify  its entanglement properties in terms of number theoretical  functions.
