Quantum Computing Part 1
Could quantum computing be used to have multiple variables refer to the same spaces of memory for their values? For instance the property of superposition means the qbit takes on multiple values at once. Could this allow a single character or integer to be represented by one piece of memory and then have multiple variables refer to it, thus reducing the amount of total memory used? Entanglement refers to the state of one quantum particle taking on the (same or opposite?) (state or spin) as another and when one changes so does the other. Could this allow for the state of a variable to become entangled with that of a static integer or character?
When I envision this I think of one qbit referencing multiple static places in memory and combining those positions into its own unique value. So, 143 would refer to a 1 place in memory, a 4 place in memory, and a 3 place in memory. I don’t know how math operations would be done yet. Another qbit with a value of 444 would reference the same static section of memory as the previous qbit 3 times.
I don’t think this necessarily lines up when conventional binary language. I don’t know how to articulate it yet. Also, I’m not sure how far you can go with entanglement or superposition. My concept seems to require degrees of freedom within entanglement, partial entanglement, or partial entanglement with multiple different quantum particles. It would the also require a qbit to hold more than two states in a specific order to hold a value.
I think this would drastically reduce the amount of memory needed to do computations thus speeding up computations.
