Abstract

Quantum computation is a rapidly progressing field today. What are its principles? In what sense is it distinct from conventional computation? What are its advantages and disadvantages? What type of problems can it address? How practical is it to make a quantum computer? I summarise some of the important concepts of quantum computation, in an attempt to answer these questions. A deeper understanding of them would pave the way for future development.
