### Abstract

For the most part of the science's history, the numerical computation was part of a large amount of ways to realize some daily forecasts and to confirm (or invalidate) many theories. But, besides the Uncertain of Physics, we are limited by our computational skills.

My biggest objective in this presentation is to bring some interesting topics derived from the computational area in Physics. It's a tremendous discipline to be treated numerically and it brings a lot of challenges.

I will try to talk about the next topics:

* The mechanical computation of numbers (Pascal, Leibniz and the mechanical machines)

* The definition of bit and mathematical applicability

* The numerical analysis of a Physics Problem (algorithms and supercomputers)

* The physics of quantum superposition and the qubits

I do not want to bring the mathematical formalism, the physics operation or the bombastic join with fields and multi-dimensions.

I assume you have some basic knowledge in Physics and Mathematics.

Maybe, between the Uncertain, it's possible to appear some funny toys instead of waves functions.

You assume too much... (But I upvoted, seems very interesting).

:) Hope you get selected!

How basic is basic? Also, how many formulas per minute will I be looking at? Well, upvoted anyways :p

are you gonna talk about how quantum computers will be able to solve complex problems linearly or almost linearly? would love to see the practical effects that quantum computing could have on RSA for example...

Seems like an interesting talk, I would really like to see some more theoretical talks on codebits.

Still, I would like to have more information on the abstract.

For example, what do you mean when you say: "The definition of bit and mathematical applicability"?

Are you just going to skim some aplications? Are you going to talk about some of them in detail?

Also, if possible, could you talk a little bit about the differences between the classical quantum computing and adiabatic quantum computations/quantum annealing?

I only have a small background on the classical part and would really like to know some more about the differences between the theory and the famous D-Wave machines, that have been classified by many as not "real" quantum computers.

+ José Lopes (Sá), the idea is talk about computing in general, and quantum computing and some awesome possibilities in the future, big numbers included :)

+ João David Costa, I will try to give a generic overview of the history of computation, but the main focus will be the current state of the art, with of course some examples. I will try to give as much detail as possible in some of the cases, it's important to demonstrate the power of the quantum computation theory.

I like your suggestions, I will keep them in mind!
