Why Quantum Computing, why simulator and why Haskell?
The answer to the first question is the standard one. Because Quantum Computing (QC) is out there. Because many, many bright people devote their time to advance the theory and the experiments. Because new papers are being produced on daily basis for the past few years. Because it does not look any more like a meteor about to burn out and die. Because it is a bleeding edge of science and technology. Because it is an intellectual challenge.
Looks like great fun. If you don't know your QC from your GC, there are some useful references at the end (some of them to online papers).
