Solving k-SAT problems with generalized quantum measurement

Kavli Affiliate: Birgitta Whaley | First 5 Authors: Yipei Zhang, Philippe Lewalle, K. Birgitta Whaley, , | Summary: We generalize the projection-based quantum measurement-driven $k$-SAT algorithm of Benjamin, Zhao, and Fitzsimons (BZF, arxiv:1711.02687) to arbitrary strength quantum measurements, including the limit of continuous monitoring. In doing so, we clarify that this algorithm is a particular […]
