Qubit, An Intuition #4 — Unitary Matrices for Quantum Computation

TL;DR; 
Unitary matrices, with examples and their implementation in IBM quantum.
Please refer to the previous articles:
Qubit, An Intuition #1 — First Baby Steps in Exploring the Quantum World” for a discussion on a single qubit as a computing unit for quantum computation.
- "Qubit, An Intuition #2 - Inner Product, Outer Product, and Tensor Product" for a discussion on two-qubits operations.
- "Qubit, An Intuition #3 - Quantum Measurement, Full and Partial Qubits" for examples on full and partial quantum measurements.

For an introductory helicopter view of the overall six articles in the series, please visit this link “Embarking on a Journey to Quantum Computing — Without Physics Degree.”

Unitary Matrices for Quantum Computation

Unitary matrices for X (NOT), H (Hadamard), Z, and CNOT gates.

X, H, Z, and CNOT Gates in IBM Quantum

The X (NOT), H (Hadamard), Z, and CNOT gates in IBM Quantum on IBM Cloud.
An H gate brings the quantum state to be in superposition.
