Here's a 1997 paper on quantum computing in the large that I had been asking about: http://www.media.mit.edu/physics/projects/spins/home.html Neil Gershenfeld and Isaac Chuang have developed an entirely new approach to quantum computation that promises to solve many of these problems. Instead of

bounded storage model - why is R organized as 2-d array?

2006-03-08 Thread Travis H.
Hey, In Maurer's paper, which is the last link here on the following page, he proposes to use a public random pad to encrypt the plaintext based on bits selected by a key. What I'm wondering is why he chose the strange construction for encryption; namely, that he uses an additive (mod 2) cipher
