Search and Problem Solving by Random Walks: Drunkards vs Quantum Computers

672. WE-Heraeus-Seminar


28 May - 01 Jun 2018


Physikzentrum Bad Honnef

Scientific organizers:

Prof. T. Kiss, Wigner Res. Budapest/HUN • Prof. S. Denisov, U Augsburg • Prof. E. Barkai, Bar-Ilan Univ./ISR

The main aim of the workshop is to discuss first detection/arrival problems for quantum and classical walks, for example, on a graph, and possible optimisation of search protocols. We believe that better understanding parallels and fundamental differences between classical and quantum - in this particular context - will open the avenue towards solutions of many problems in the now emerging area of quantum information technology. The planned workshop serves this goal by bringing together the two communities of scientists working on classical and quantum walks.
