Unconventional Quantum Computing Devices

Lloyd, Seth;
Open Access English
  • Published: 31 Mar 2000
This paper investigates a variety of unconventional quantum computation devices, including fermionic quantum computers and computers that exploit nonlinear quantum mechanics. It is shown that unconventional quantum computing devices can in principle compute some quantities more rapidly than `conventional' quantum computers.
