Recent results show that these properties can be derived axiomatically, from the symmetries the? global evolution

Spurious References[edit]

There are several references to papers by I. C. Baianu. They are listed as having been published in 1971, but they were clearly written much later, and date from 2004. There are no references in the existing literature to this work outside of the author's own papers.

On further inspection, I. C. Baianu appears to be a professor of Food Chemistry, and has no affiliations with any research groups in physics, mathematics, or computer science. This is highly unusual for someone claiming to have produced work in the field of Quantum Computation that would have been decades ahead of it's time.

The papers themselves are largely incoherent, with meaningless jargon throughout. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:32, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Baianu really was publishing as early as 1971; see e.g. doi:10.1007/BF02476778. But I can easily believe (just from seeing the first page of that reference) that his works are buzzword-laden nonsense rather than containing any substantive contribution. Thanks for catching this. —David Eppstein (talk) 18:24, 28 November 2009 (UTC)
