Paper Abstract

A real quantum computer theoretically can perform a large number of parallel processing at the same time by superposition states and unitary transformations in a Hilbert space. We show that arbitrary unitary transformation can be operated in a framework of classic physics such as optics. We also show that, using the optics, the same processing as what quantum computing logic does can be implemented and that image recognition can be done by that logic. Although our system currently does not utilize entanglement physics like a quantum computer using electronic spin system, we can construct a high dimensional Hilbert space (e.g. one thousand dimension). We consider that our system may be another approach to realize quantum computing paradigm.
