Nature conducts its action in a very private manner. To

\r\nreveal these actions classical science has done a great effort. But

\r\nclassical science can experiment only with the things that can be seen

\r\nwith eyes. Beyond the scope of classical science quantum science

\r\nworks very well. It is based on some postulates like qubit,

\r\nsuperposition of two states, entanglement, measurement and

\r\nevolution of states that are briefly described in the present paper.

\r\nOne of the applications of quantum computing i.e.

\r\nimplementation of a novel quantum evolutionary algorithm(QEA) to

\r\nautomate the time tabling problem of Dayalbagh Educational Institute

\r\n(Deemed University) is also presented in this paper. Making a good

\r\ntimetable is a scheduling problem. It is NP-hard, multi-constrained,

\r\ncomplex and a combinatorial optimization problem. The solution of

\r\nthis problem cannot be obtained in polynomial time. The QEA uses

\r\ngenetic operators on the Q-bit as well as updating operator of

\r\nquantum gate which is introduced as a variation operator to converge

\r\ntoward better solutions.<\/p>\r\n","references":null,"publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 79, 2013"}
