Tangent entanglement happens when one qubit s state depends on another s
Tangent: Entanglement Happens When One Qubit’s State Depends on Another’s


Not Entangled

If you measure the firstqubit and it’s 0, you knowthe second qubit is 0 too.They’re entangled!

If you measure the firstqubit and it’s 0, you don’tknow the second qubit.

They’re independent!

You can add all numbers at once
You Can Add All Numbers At Once!

If n has the factors p and q,then, if you pick a random x,the above sequence has aperiod that evenly dividesinto (p-1)(q-1)
