2008 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. We study the quantum circuit design using 1-bit and 2-bit unitary gates for the iterations of the multi-object quantum search algorithm. The oracle block is designed in order to efficiently implement any sign-flipping operations. A chief ingredient in the design is the permutation operator which maps a set of search targets to another set on which the sign-flipping operation can be easily done. Such a proposed algorithmic approach implicates a minimal symmetric group generation problem: how to generate elements of a symmetric group using the smallest number of concatenations with a set of given generators. For the general case, this is an open problem. We indicate how the complexity issues depend on the solution of this problem through simple examples.
