Q: Why don't qubits continuously rotate in the $z$ direction?

user2723984If we have a physical qubit with energy eigenstates $|0\rangle$ and $|1\rangle$ with energy separation $\Delta E$ its Hamiltonian in the absence of any interaction is $$H=\hbar\frac{\Delta E}{2}\sigma_z $$ the time evolution operator is $U=e^{-iHt/\hbar}$, so why doesn't a qubit left to itself ...

Q: Express a 2x2 matrix in terms of the quantum logic gates

PatrickGiven a complex matrix $M = \begin{pmatrix} c & 0\\ 0 & c^* \end{pmatrix}$, where $c$ is a complex number. How can one express $M$ in terms of the fundamental quantum logic gates?
