Membership amplitudes and obscure qudits

Steven Duplij, Raimund Vogl

A concept of quantum computing is proposed which naturally incorporates an additional kind of uncertainty, i.e. vagueness (fuzziness), by introducing obscure qudits (qubits), which are simultaneously characterized by a quantum probability and a membership function. Along with the quantum amplitude, a membership amplitude for states is introduced. The Born rule is used for the quantum probability only, while the membership function can be computed through the membership amplitudes according to a chosen model. Two different versions are given here: the "product" obscure qubit in which the resulting amplitude is a product of the quantum amplitude and the membership amplitude, and the "Kronecker" obscure qubit, where quantum and vagueness computations can be performed independently (i.e. quantum computation alongside truth). The measurement and entanglement of obscure qubits are briefly described.
