Abstract

"I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics". Richard P Feyman, Chapter 6, "Probability and uncertainty - the Quantum Mechanical View of Nature" p.129.
Though some people may disagree with the above famous quote, it is undeniable that the rules by which quantum mechanics plays are unlike anything that govern our everyday "classical existence". Phenomena such as quantum superposition and entanglement define fundamentally new ways by which we can compute, communicate, measure and sense have, for the past few decades, led to the rapid development in what we now call quantum technologies.
