Solving systems of linear equations on a quantum computer

Yigit Subasi
CCS-3

Some computational problems that are hard for classical computers can be solved efficiently using quantum computers. One such problem is solving a system of linear equations. In this talk I will describe what makes this problem hard for classical algorithms and how various quantum algorithms solve this problem in time that scales polylogarithmic in the dimension of the linear system. I will also discuss the caveats to this claim to exponential quantum speedup and some applications.
