# s-phys: "entanglement entropy of a qubit", the begin ...

<< All systems are fundamentally quantum systems (..) but the means of describing in a quantum sense the chaotic behavior of, say, air molecules in an evacuated room, remains limited >>

<< To investigate, [AA] devised an experiment using three quantum bits, the basic computational units of the quantum computer >>

<< By manipulating these qubits with electronic pulses, [AA] caused them to interact, rotate and evolve in the quantum analog of a highly sensitive classical [chaotic] system >>

<< The result is a map of entanglement entropy of a qubit that, over time, comes to strongly resemble that of classical dynamics — the regions of entanglement in the quantum map resemble the regions of chaos on the classical map >>
