Title: Arithmetic Circuits For Quantum Computing

Abstract:Quantum algorithm is an algorithm that runs on a realistic model of quantum computation. Quantum circuits of arithmetic operations are vital in designing quantum hardware for Shor’s factoring algorithm, solving discrete log problem and quantum cryptanalysis, securing cryptosystems, and circuit design of quantum algorithms. Quantum arithmetic circuits are widely used in quantum algorithms for quantum image orientation, pattern recognition and template matching. The quantum arithmetic circuits are vital to design circuits for scientific computing and quantum algorithms such as Poisson equation, linear systems of equations HHL, and Quantum Rejection Sampling. This talk will discuss quantum circuits for arithmetic functions with multi-metric constraints and quantum circuits for basic image processing based on proposed arithmetic circuits.
