Abstract: Quantum computers may provide a significant speed increase over classical computation. In order to fully exploit quantum computation, we need to have a firm mathematical understanding of quantum computation at its smallest level, the qubit. By thinking of qubits as complex projective spaces, we are able to establish a clear mathematical conception of qubits. This understanding will be illustrated via Grover’s Algorithm.
