All spherically symmetric charged anisotropic solutions for compact starFeb 05 2015Jun 08 2017In the present paper we develop an algorithm for all spherically symmetric anisotropic charged fluid distribution. Considering a new source function $\nu(r)$ we find out a set of solutions which is physically well behaved and represent compact stellar ... More

Designing Quantum Router in IBM Quantum ComputerMar 17 2018Quantum router is an essential ingredient in a quantum network. Here, we propose a new quantum circuit for designing quantum router by using IBM's five-qubit quantum computer. We design an equivalent quantum circuit, by the means of single-qubit and two-qubit ...
