Quantum algorithms – a first example

We have now seen how quantum gates implement unitary transformations on qubits. Intuitively, we should, as in the classical case, now be able to combine these quantum gates into quantum algorithms that perform more complex sequences of manipulations of a quantum state. In this post, we will look at a first example to get an … Continue reading Quantum algorithms – a first example

Networking basics – IP routing and the ARP protocol

In the last post in this series, we have covered the basics of the IP protocol - the layout of a network message and the process of fragmentation. However, there is one point which we have not yet discussed. Assume that an application or operating system has actually assembled a message and applied fragmentation so … Continue reading Networking basics – IP routing and the ARP protocol
