[Quantum entanglement] is the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics, the one that enforces its departure from classical lines of thought.

Chapter 5 Beam Me Up, Scotty—Quantum Tagging and Entangling

The ability of quantum gates to act on the entire solution space at once offers a spectacular way to tackle some of today’s most complex problems. But for quantum computing to live up to its billing, we need a way to tease out the optimal solution efficiently, as opposed to grinding through all the possible solutions as a classical computer would do.

In this chapter, you’ll see that the mega-qubit isn’t just a nifty ...
