RE: Cats and quantum computers have more in common that one may think of…

in #steemstem4 years ago (edited)

Another interesting read and I somehow managed to miss this.

The idea was to design a shocking and non-reasonable situation, implying that the only reasonable conclusion was to reject quantum superpotions. Of course, Schrödinger failed ;)

I see what you did there! I wonder how many actually noticed.

In fact, writing a quantum state for a cat has no sense at all, no matter it is dead, alive or zombie. The reason is that a cat has continuous exchanges with its environment, as most macroscopic systems. The ‘cat system’ is thus not an isolated system.

Well, I don't trust anything I read on the internet, however I came across this pretty credible formula that stems from Schroedinger's equation for a single particle.

Never knew about quantum decoherence, sounds like an impossible obstacle in quantum computing indeed.

Have a good day :)

A golden cat? mmmh... Maybe a maxwell daemon :D

An obstacle, but one can fight it. I have however not said this wold be easy. :)

Hehe! 'Maxwell's cat'! I will try to find another lamp for 'Schroedinger's demon' now :)

Have a good day!

That is illuminative ^^

Lol! :D
