  1. Information, Physics, and Computation.Subhash C. Kak - 1996 - Foundations of Physics 26 (1):127-137.
    This paper presents several observations on the connections between information, physics, and computation. In particular, the computing power of quantum computers is examined. Quantum theory is characterized by superimposed states and nonlocal interactions. It is argued that recently studied quantum computers, which are based on local interactions, cannot simulate quantum physics.

    Speed of Computation and Simulation.Subhash C. Kak - 1996 - Foundations of Physics 26 (10):1375-1386.
    This paper examines several issues related to information, speed of computation, and simulation of a physical process. It is argued that mental processes proceed at a rate close to the optimal based on thermodynamic considerations. Problems related to the simulation of a quantum mechanical system on a computer are reviewed. Parallels are drawn between biological and adaptive quantum systems.

    Quantum Information in a Distributed Apparatus.Subhash C. Kak - 1998 - Foundations of Physics 28 (6):1005-1012.
    We investigate the information provided about a specified distributed apparatus of n units in the measurement of a quantum state. It is shown that, in contrast to such measurement of a classical state, which is bounded by log(n + 1) bits, the information in a quantum measurement is bounded by 3.7 × n 1/2 bits. This means that the use of quantum apparatus offers an exponential advantage over classical apparatus.
