Complete notes on fermions and the Jordan-Wigner transform

by Michael Nielsen on July 29, 2005

Just what the world’s been waiting for: the complete notes, in pdf format.

  1. Thanks, Michael, for these beautiful notes. One thing you forgot to mention as an application for quantum computing is the relation of your diagonalization of quadratic fermion Hamiltonians and the Jordan-Wigner transform to gate sets which are not universal, ala Terhal and Divincenzo’s result.

  2. Thanks, Dave. You’re right, the Terhal-Divincenzo (Valiant, Knill) results are certainly a nice application of this circle of ideas!

  3. Many thanks for the great notes.
