comment How is the range of $x\cdot s$ in Simon's algorithm restricted to $\{0,1\}$?
Got it! Shouldn't that be either $x\cdot y \equiv\sum_{i=1}^n x_iy_i\pmod 2$ or $x\cdot y = (\sum_{i=1}^n x_iy_i)\bmod 2$

comment How can all information be localized if local realism is dead?
(Some questions you might be able to help with: (1) recommendations for drawing quantum diagrams — circuits and Bloch Spheres; how the "mod 2" dot product gets introduced into Simon's algorithm: see my last comment on the — confused — answer, which I think is the answer I'm looking for.)

And, critically, the mixed state version of a BS is really a kind of expected value (the pure state is too, I suppose, but a degenerate one, of a random variable with a single certain outcome). Right?

Still pondering this excellent answer. There a few things I'm stumbling over, notably that, as beginner, the Bloch Sphere representations in the diagram are showing something different than I'm familiar with. I'm at the point of just thinking of the BS as a way of representing the state of a cubit; but here they're being used to represent a kind of PMF (the marginal PMF of the cubit's state) such states (actually something more like the expected value of that PMF). Is that about right?

Thanks! Could you say a bit more about "marginal state"?

Can you make this a bit more beginner-accesable (and draw some pictures; ideally as circuits)?

@Cicero: I doubt it. It's really about the details of the calculation. HSM hasn't proven to be very quantitative.
