The Church-Turing-Deutsche (CTD) Principle is the idea that all physical processes are computable by a quantum computer (i.e. quantum Turing machine).
Before I knew this idea had a name, I always thought this was the case since all physical phenomena boil down to the unitary transformation and measurement of quantum systems(?). And indeed, all a quantum algorithm is is a series of unitary transforms and measurements on a quantum system. What finite realizable physical system could possibly be uncomputable?
But reading the literature gives me the sense that there are multiple opinions on this despite me thinking that this is an empirical question. What am I missing here?
P.S. I was going to post this in the quantum computing stack exchange but thought that this question is less about quantum computing/information/algorithms and more about quantum physics in general.
P.P.S. By computable I am strictly talking about just that, computable. Not efficiently computable.
