Two examples are given that substantially simplify the no-hidden-variables theorem of Kochen and Specker, greatly reducing the number of observables considered and requiring no intricate geometric argument. While one of the examples also obeys a more powerful version of Bell's theorem, the other does not. The examples provide a new perspective on both of… (More)

A strategy is suggested for teaching mathematically literate students, with no background in physics, just enough quantum mechanics for them to understand and develop algorithms in quantum computation and quantum information theory. Although the article as a whole addresses teachers of physics well versed in quantum mechanics, the central pedagogical… (More)

To celebrate the 60th birthday of Charles H. Bennett I (1) publicly announce my referee reports for the original dense coding and telepor-tation papers, (2) present a very economical solution to the Bernstein-Vazirani problem that does not even hint at interference between multiple universes, and (3) describe how I inadvertently reinvented the Copen-hagen… (More)

The role of measurement in quantum computation is examined in the light of John Bell's critique of the how the term " measurement " is used in quantum mechanics. I argue that within the field of quantum computer science the concept of measurement is precisely defined, unproblematic, amd forms the foundation of the entire subject. Here are some words which.… (More)
