[Full Text]



C. H. Ugwuishiwu , U. E. Orji, O.Ukwueze , P. O. Ogbobe



Quantum elements; quantum algorithm; error correcting codes; quantum physics.



Quantum Elements, Efficient Quantum Algorithms and Quantum Error Correcting Codes are some of the fundamental concepts of quantum computing. In this paper, the authors aim to introduce readers and potential researchers to the subject areas to help them appreciate the intrigues and ideas behind quantum computing. The authors introduced the basic concepts of quantum physics which is the foundation for quantum computing. Related literature such as books, journals, conference proceedings, lecture notes and webpages on this field of study were sourced and reviewed from top databases like IEEE Xplore, JSTOR, ScienceDirect etc.
