Questions tagged [amplitude-amplification]

For questions about the amplitude-amplitude algorithm. Do NOT use for general Grover's algorithm related question. Amplitude amplification is a technique in quantum computing which generalizes the idea behind Grover's search algorithm and gives rise to a family of quantum algorithms. It was discovered by Gilles Brassard and Peter Høyer in 1997 and independently rediscovered by Lov Grover in 1998. (Wikipedia)


Does Brassard's algorithm for calculating the mean make implicit assumptions on distribution?

In An optimal quantum algorithm to approximate the mean and its application for approximating the median of a set of points over an arbitrary distance Brassard presents a quantum algorithm for finding ...
