Abstract

I show the relationship between handling information from two different perspectives; classical and quantum. This comparison show that IT, computer Science, mathematics and physics are integrated sciences. I review some basic tools that are used in computations and their corresponding in the quantum domain. I introduce an application that is based on the main principles of quantum mechanics. Finally, I will discuss the possibility of secure communication via freezing the travelling information between any two users in a quantum network.
