Elementary gates for quantum computation.
We show that a set of gates that consists of all one-bit quantum gates (U(2)) and the two-bit exclusive-or gate (that maps Boolean values (x,y) to (x,x ⊕y)) is universal in the sense that all unitaryExpand

  • 22 May 1996
TLDR
We exhibit a simple, systematic procedure for detecting and correcting errors using any of the recently reported quantum error-correcting codes using a group-theoretic framework for unifying all known quantum codes. Expand
Enhanced production of low-mass electron pairs in 200 GeV/nucleon S-Au collisions at the CERN super proton synchrotron.
We report on measurements of low-mass electron pairs in 450 GeV {ital p}-Be, {ital p}-Au, and 200 GeV/nucleon S-Au collisions at central rapidities. For the proton induced interactions, the low-massExpand
Characterization of n-Type p-Sic as a Piezoresistor
Sic is currently being investigated for device applications involving high temperatures. In this paper, the properties of n-type P-SiC relevant to piezoresistive devices, namely the gauge factor (GF)Expand

  • 18 March 1985
The formation of the quark-gluon plasma in relativistic nuclear collisions may be determined by enhanced production of $\ensuremath{\varphi}$ mesons. This enhancement would result from the absence ofExpand
