Improved Quantum Algorithm for Triangle Finding via Combinatorial Arguments [article]

Improved Classical and Quantum Algorithms for Subset-Sum [article]

Xavier Bonnetain, Rémi Bricout, André Schrottenloher, Yixin Shen
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This time is dependent on a heuristic on quantum walk updates, formalized by Helm and May, that is also required by the previous algorithms.  ...  We also propose new quantum walks for subset-sum, performing better than the previous best time complexity of 𝒪̃(2^0.226 n) given by Helm and May (TQC 2018).  ...  Second, both use a conjecture (implicit in [6] , made explicit in [17] ) about quantum walk updates.  ...

Quantum-enhanced deliberation of learning agents using trapped ions

V Dunjko, N Friis, H J Briegel
2015 New Journal of Physics  
In particular, classical random walks were substituted by Szegedy-type quantum walks, allowing for a speed-up.  ...  We employ a generic construction by which the classical agents are 'upgraded' to their quantum counterparts by nested coherent controlization, and we outline how this construction can be realized in ion  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to Adi Makmal, Markus Tiersch, Benjamin P Lanyon, Daniel Nigg and Thomas Monz for valuable discussions and comments.  ...

Cuckoo search: recent advances and applications

Xin-She Yang, Suash Deb
2013 Neural computing & applications (Print)  
Cuckoo search (CS) is a relatively new algorithm, developed by Yang and Deb in 2009, and CS is efficient in solving global optimization problems.  ...  We also discuss the essence of algorithms and its link to self-organizing systems, and finally we propose some important topics for further research.  ...  As mentioned in Section 3.1, the local search is very intensive with about 1/4 of the search time (for p a = 0.25), while global search takes about 3/4 of the total search time.  ...

2013 SIGPLAN notices  
Still, there is currently a lack of programming languages for describing quantum computation on a practical scale, i.e., not just at the level of toy problems.  ...  Quipper has been used to program a diverse set of non-trivial quantum algorithms, and can generate quantum gate representations using trillions of gates.  ...  They make use of a wide variety of quantum primitives, such as amplitude amplification, quantum walks, the quantum Fourier transform, and quantum simulation.  ...

Faster quantum mixing for slowly evolving sequences of Markov chains [article]

Davide Orsucci, Hans J. Briegel, Vedran Dunjko
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We provide a quantum memory-efficient algorithm with a run-time of O(√(δ^-1)√(N)), neglecting logarithmic terms, which is an important improvement for large state spaces.  ...  However, except in special cases, quantum algorithms achieve a run-time of O(√(δ^-1)√(N)), which introduces a costly dependence on the Markov chain size N, not present in the classical case.  ...  Appendix B: Szegedy quantum walk Here we review the basics of Szegedy quantum walks. For further details see [29, 42] and references therein. a.  ...

Quipper has been used to program a diverse set of nontrivial quantum algorithms, and is able to generate quantum gate representations using trillions of gates.  ...  It is geared towards a model of computation that uses a classical computer to control a quantum device, but is not dependent on any particular model of quantum hardware.  ...  Many quantum algorithms require a circuit to be reversed in the middle of a computation, perhaps within a nested subroutine.  ...
