The weird and wonderful world of the qubit¶
In this section we will introduce you to the qubit. A qubit (pronounced “cue-bit” and short for quantum bit) is the physical carrier of quantum information; in other words, it is the quantum version of a bit, and quantum computing revolves around it.
By the end of this section you will have a basic understanding of
