%X Nature conducts its action in a very private manner. To
reveal these actions classical science has done a great effort. But
classical science can experiment only with the things that can be seen
with eyes. Beyond the scope of classical science quantum science
works very well. It is based on some postulates like qubit,
superposition of two states, entanglement, measurement and
evolution of states that are briefly described in the present paper.
One of the applications of quantum computing i.e.
implementation of a novel quantum evolutionary algorithm(QEA) to
automate the time tabling problem of Dayalbagh Educational Institute
(Deemed University) is also presented in this paper. Making a good
timetable is a scheduling problem. It is NP-hard, multi-constrained,
complex and a combinatorial optimization problem. The solution of
this problem cannot be obtained in polynomial time. The QEA uses
genetic operators on the Q-bit as well as updating operator of
quantum gate which is introduced as a variation operator to converge
toward better solutions.
