Discrete Wigner Function Formulation of QubitsPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project investigates the discrete Wigner function for systems of qubits following Wootters's recent work. The general formalism is developed for n qubits and applied to systems of one and two qubits. Among the applications considered are: implementation of rotations and gates on 1- and 2-qubit systems and state reconstruction through quantum tomography. We discover that crossing two 1-qubit DWFs to form one 2-qubit DWF requires the use of different quantum nets. We also investigate reduction of the 2-qubit DWF.
