Abstract

The relation between the physical world where the hypothetical quantum computer is supposed to reside, and the formal mathematical theorem proofs is analysed. In mathematics, one proves theorems on the basis of axioms, which by definition are supposed to be fullfilled exactly. However, in the physical world nothing can be exact. The existing theory does not respond to the obvious question: what precision is needed?
