If you have a question about this talk, please contact William Matthews. Although quantum mechanics is linear, there are nevertheless quantum systems with multiple interacting particles in which the effective evolution of a single particle is governed by a nonlinear Schrodinger equation. Bose-Einstein condensates, for example, can be described by the Gross-Pitaevskii Equation under certain conditions, which has a term proportional to the cube of the wavefunction. We show that with such a nonlinearity, the unstructured search problem can be solved in constant time. Our algorithm, however, requires increasingly precise time measurement with increasing problem size, N, but since solving the problem more slowly reduces the necessary measurement precision, the resource requirements can be jointly optimized to scale as N This talk is part of the CQIF Seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- All CMS events
