Entanglement is an important phenomenon that enables quantum information processing algorithms and quantum communications protocols. Although entangled quantum states are often described in radix-2, higher-radix qudits can become entangled as well. In this work, we both introduce partial entanglement, a concept that does not exist for radix-2 quantum systems, and differentiate between partial and maximal entanglement within non-binary quantum information processing systems. We also develop and…

A fast quantum mechanical algorithm for database search
In early 1994, it was demonstrated that a quantum mechanical computer could efficiently solve a well-known problem for which there was no known efficient algorithm using classical computers, i.e. testing whether or not a given integer, N, is prime, in a time which is a finite power of o (logN) .
Quantum Logic Implementation of Unary Arithmetic Operations
It is shown that the inheritance principle in conjunction with the bijective nature of many unary functions is used to realize compact quantum logic cascades that require no ancilla digits and generate no garbage outputs.
