Generalization of grovers algorithm to multiobject search in quantum computing, part I: Continuous time and discrete time Academic Article uri icon


  • 2002 by Chapman & Hall/CRC. L. K. Grovers search algorithm in quantum computing gives an optimal, quadratic speedup in the search for a single object in a large unsorted database. In this paper, we generalize Grovers algorithm in a Hilbert-space framework for both continuous and discrete time cases that isolates its geometrical essence to the case where more than one object satisfies the search criterion.
