I think 2^N is incorrect. This is what a binary bit does.

2^8=256 would be 8 bits for a conventional computer.

Maybe N^N is right, but I'm not sure.

8^8=16,777,216

Any clarification?

I still do not understand quantum computing.

It has to do with the entanglement of the sub atomic particles.

There was an experiment that proved they behave differently when being measured to give you a more expected result.

The state of entanglement is the state of not being measured, this allows the SAP to act different.Not Be confined by our logic until the answer is produced.

Well... I don't understand quantum computing either, but if

"...N qubits are the equivalent of 2N bits of information.."

then 8 qubits = 28 bits = 256 bits = 2256 unique values

Thanks for that explanation; I looked at it for a while before the light can on.

One step at a time, starting with the thing in itself.

What is the identity of the q-bit subatomic particle?

Next,

How does one introduce/apply a logic code to a cause a unique non-binary presumably hyper-ephemeral dynamic entanglement of such particles?

We off and running down the Yellow Brick Road to taking quantum computing from alchemy to science.

That is what I love about sconce most of the time it raises more questions than it answers .

Always bemusing and a bit amusing to read a discussion in the comments section between posters who have no understanding

of what they are discussing.

Having said that, quantum computing is a field that I've almost completely ignored.

What I do know that the biggest challenge to building a working quantum computer is decoherence as discussed above.
