Quantum::Usrn - Square root of not.
use Quantum::Usrn; $noise = Usrn($value); $not_value = Usrn($noise);
Provide the 'square root of not' function (Usrn), used by weird Quantum Physicists. Applying Usrn to a value will produce noise; applying Usrn to that noise will produce the bitwise negation of the original value.
It all sounds a bit stange, and mostly useless.
On Monday 26th February 2001 I went to hear Damian Conway give his talk on Quantum::Superpositions at London.pm. During the talk he described the Physics of real quamtum superpositions, and mentioned the 'square root of not' operator. After explaining its properties (see above) he said "it is unlikely that you will see this operator in Perl any time soon". Well, we all know what happens when people say things like that...
A good physics book or psychiatrist.
