Quantum Poker -- a pedagogical tool to learn quantum computing that is fun to play

  title={Quantum Poker -- a pedagogical tool to learn quantum computing that is fun to play},
  author={F. Fuchs and Vemund Falch and Christian Johnsen},
Quantum computers are on the verge of becoming a commercially available reality. They represent a paradigm change to the classical computing paradigm, and the learning curve is considerably long. The creation of games is a way to ease the transition for novices. We present a game similar to the poker variant Texas hold ’em with the intention to serve as an engaging pedagogical tool to learn the basics rules of quantum computing. The difference to the classical variant is that the community… Expand

An Introduction to Quantum Computing, Without the Physics
A gentle but rigorous introduction to quantum computing intended for discrete mathematicians, starting from a small set of assumptions on the behavior of quantum computing devices, and describing two well-known algorithms using the formalism developed in previous sections. Expand
Practical Quantum Error Mitigation for Near-Future Applications
This work describes a protocol for systematically measuring the effect of errors so as to design efficient QEM circuits and introduces an exponential variant of the extrapolation method to enable practical implementation of these ideas. Expand
Quantum games: a review of the history, current state, and interpretation
We review both theoretical and experimental developments in the area of quantum games since the inception of the subject circa 1999. We will also offer a narrative on the controversy that surroundedExpand
