# Questions tagged [grovers-algorithm]

Grover's search algorithm is an algorithm that can perform a search in the order of square root of the input size. This is a provable speed up over the best classical algorithm, which requires a time of order N to perform a search.

### Is the $|-\rangle$ state the only one that can do the trick for Grover's algorithm?

$\newcommand{\qr}{|#1\rangle}$Grover algorithm's input is a superposition, representing the haystack, and the Bell state $\qr{-}$. The $\qr{-}$ seems utterly important: when I replaced $\qr{-}$ by,...
