## Mists Demystified

## Understanding Misty Structures*

##### The main goal of *Mists Demystified* is to disprove the following deceptive popular perception, a damaging viewpoint because it discourages people from participating in a fascinating emerging technology with the realistic possibility of elevating the quality of everyone’s lives.

##### The Credentials Theorem – Appreciating the beauty and magic of Quantum Computing is possible __if and only if__ you have solid STEM credentials.

__if and only if__

**In fact, only sufficiency is true, while the converse – that STEM training is necessary to meaningfully grasp what is fascinating about QC is flagrantly false, as we demonstrate throughout this material.**

**Learning Insights – **To deliver an enjoyable learning experience to readers with limited STEM background, strategically located below are options for taking a gentler slope to digest potentially unfamiliar concepts.

***Based on book Q Is For Quantum by Dr. Terry Rudolph (2017) and paper Teaching Quantum Information Science To High-School And Early Undergraduate Students by Economou, Rudolph, and Barnes (2020).**
