The Deutsch Algorithm

Much more than a post (again) What is the quantum theory? As said by quantumexperience official site by IBM, it's an elegant mathematical theory able to explain the counterintuitive behavior of subatomic particles, most notably the phenomenon of entanglement. In the late twentieth century it was discovered that quantum theory applies not only to atoms and molecules, but to bits and logic operations in a computer. This realization has been bringing about a revolution in the science and technology of information processing: I decided to write some notes to better explain, from a physics-agnostic computer scientist's point of view XD, what I understood - and it is certainly wrong - about Q until now and why I think it's an amazing field for computer science.

The Doomsday rule

The Doomsday rule A few months ago I came across the name of J. H. Conway: you're wondering who the hell he is. Well, Conway is an English mathematician active in the theory of finite groups, knot theory, number theory, combinatorial game theory and coding theory. He has also contributed to many branches of recreational mathematics and he is the invention of the Game of Life. Ah, I was forgetting one last thing: he is currently Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Princeton University in New Jersey1.
