Hi Ralfcis,
Smoke Bombs? Please explain.
Assembly language produces Machine code. Before assemblers I had to do all my programming directly into machine code. No, never used VHDL.
Quantum computers supposedly employ superposition. In essence a Qubit is still Binary but in an Unknown state until measured. The primary advantage is for use in Guessing Answers. Every programmer that has tried to solve a complex problem that exists in a multi-variable setup understands the issues of polynomial time. A brute force algorithm will eventually succeed but may take a very long time. It's impossible for a mathematical algorithm to randomly guess. The distribution of such mathematical guesses can have gaps or repetitions. Any method that proves non-redundant Guessing is no better than a Brute Force search. The hope is that Quantum Computing will be faster at Guessing a solution than traditional search algorithm computing or pseudo-random methods.
For straight forward math or logic type computing, having randomized elements doesn't help.
For elevating a 2D CA to any higher Dimension is quite simple. Interpreting the results however.. is a bitch.
I make no claim to be any type of expert in the general field of Mathematics. Like everything else, the tools taught in school fade very rapidly unless ones uses such frequently. Because of my advancing age, it is becoming increasing difficult to maintain focus on solving a problem or writing a program. My error rate is becoming a real issue. I'm retiring as soon as possible (I'm 66).
Best wishes,
Dave :^)
