One method of cooling qubits is extracting entropy from them, thus purifying them. ( {\displaystyle m2^{n'}} r A ) is smaller than the bias of the heat bath ( = 1 3 = And it was an early meeting place for the basic simulation methods as the Metropolis algorithm that we discussed in the lecture or the closely related heat-bath algorithm later on, also for the cluster simulation methods. | w w , ϵ ϵ ) 8 , b 3 1 ) + i s ϵ This means that the array contains small thermodynamic systems, each with the same entropy.

On the other hand, algorithmic cooling can be operated in room temperature and be used in MRS in vivo,[7] while methods that required lower temperature can be used in biopsy, outside of the living body. 1 ≪ − This is because the bath is normally not considered as a part of the relevant system, due to its size. | in a different manner than the two classical steps, it yields the same final bias for qubit + ′ I n = ′ 1 {\displaystyle \epsilon _{b}} 1 b This is due to the fact that these algorithms do not explicitly use quantum phenomena in their operations or analysis, and mainly rely on information theory. + Moreover, the entropy previously mentioned can be viewed using the prism of information theory, which assigns entropy to any random variable. b with probability 2 +
