Abstract

The role of measurement in quantum computation is examined in the light of John Bell’s critique of the how the term “measurement” is used in quantum mechanics. I argue that within the field of quantum computer science the concept of measurement is precisely defined, unproblematic, and forms the foundation of the entire subject.
