# QuantumScript

## What it is

This repo attempts to emulate some of the parts of the mechanics in quantum theory.

Because quantum physics cannot reasonably be translated into JavaScript, a lot of how this library works is based on randomly choosing a set of superpositions when observing the object.

You should also provide a set of known states to be used as the superposition of the object.

## Basic Usage

You can install QuantumScript with `npm i quantumscript`

Now let's setup a quantum dice, it will have 6 sides. This will mean that in 6 different worlds the die is facing every possible way. So the die at the time of creation is in a superposition, and is as far as you know, rolled to every possible solution. Schrödinger's die, if you will.

```const dice = new Quantum(
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
);```

Now we'd like to observe the die and thus collapse it's superposition into one possible state. Which is made simple by running `.observe()`.

`dice.observe(); // 4`

Great, so our die is 4 right? Let's check again.

`dice.observe(); // 4`

Sweet, let's see if the number is even.

`dice.interact(die => !die % 2); // true`

Awesome, 4 is even... it was 4 right? Let's be sure.

`dice.observe(); // 6`

Because we've interacted with the die it has returned to a superposition.

## Functional Usage

You may pass functions in as the possible state, along with anything else, if the quantum object collapses into a functional state, it will then run the previous value on that function. You can set this up as shown below, passing the known state as you fist observe as the second argument. This is necessary if you expect any results from your functions.

```new Quantum(
[Math.sqrt, Math.abs, Math.floor, Math.tan, 56, 'Oak Tree'],
-6.8431234
);```

## Some closing remarks

Many things this repo offers may be incorrect, and may need changing. I've been building this as a way to try to understand the world at a nanoscopic scale. If you're an expert at this sort of thing, please submit ideas via issues, or improvements via pull requests! Enjoy this useless but interesting repo.
