I am confused of all that different Quantum computers.
please correct me if I say something wrong.
There are two main different types of quantum computing:
- Quantum Gates based computing
- quantum annealing
For quantum gate based computing, I know that there are different kind of architectures -- that's clear for me.
But why I am so confused is, there is the Quantum Annealing, which is used by D-Wave Systems and that Q. annealer is using the adiabatic theorem , right ?
So then we can say that Adiabatic Quantum Annealer = Quantum Annealer ?
The next confusing term is Adiabatic Quantum Computer , is that Adiabatic Quantum Annealer?
And the last is what is Quantum Simulator ? Where is that used ? which type of quantum computing are that simulated? And is there a difference between them and quantum annealing ?
Too many questions :/
