Testing GitHub Actions08 May 2020
Please disregard this post; it is only intended to check that GitHub Actions work correctly with jekyll-katex.
By way of context, it helps to revisit a little bit of what a quantum state is in the first place. Typically, if we have an -qubit register, we think of a state of that register as being a vector with complex elements; one for each possible classical bit string on bits.
For example, when we write out a state in Dirac notation like , we could have also written that same state out as a vector on four elements:
As our system gets larger and larger, this gets more and more unwieldy. Even at three qubits, things get big in a hurry:
