Quantum Computation by Adiabatic Evolution

April 25, 2008 @ 11:00 am

Edward Farhi (MIT Physics)

The quantum adiabatic algorithm is a general approach to solving combinatorial search problems using a quantum computer. It will succeed if the run time is long enough. I will discuss how this algorithm works and our current understanding of the required run time.
