Glossary

A quantum computer makes use of quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. A classical computer has a memory made up of bits, where each bit represents either a one or a zero. A quantum computer maintains a sequence of qubits. A single qubit can represent a one, a zero, or any quantum superposition of these two qubit states.

Quantum computers will be able to solve certain problems much faster by using the best currently known algorithms, like integer factorization or the simulation of quantum many-body systems
