After introducing the fundamentals of quantum circuits for a general audience, this report evaluates two means of constructing W-states: the probabilistic naive construction (PNC) and the optimized splitter construction (OSC). These methods are compared in terms of asymptotic gate cost and other parameters. Furthermore, a proof of Bell's theorem is explored with new results concerning the probability of contradicting elements of reality using W-states.
