Quantum versus classical, qubits versus bits

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
Methods for measuring an integral of a classical field via local interaction of classical bits or local interaction of qubits passing through the field one at a time are analyzed. A quantum method, which has an exponentially better precision than any classical method we could see, is described. An alternative quantum method using only one particle is proposed.
