Quantum computing studies theoretical computation systems (quantum computers) that make direct use of quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data.

Following the first quantum algorithms we have already reviewed (Deutsch’s algorithm and the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm — it’s better to read these articles first, otherwise all the things mentioned here will be quite vague), let’s analyze Grover’s algorithm for the unstructured quantum search. An American mathematician Lov Grover formulated the algorithm in 1996 (it was long after the model of quantum computations had become popular). The algorithm uses a feature of quantum interference in order to solve an extremely demanding task of searching the value of some parameter, at which a defined function returns certain results.

We have already mentioned this algorithm when solving the simplest tasks in quantum computations. Let’s go on developing the framework and review the initial algorithm enhancement, named the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm. It is another article in the series about the model of quantum computations. That’s why you’d better read the previous articles, as they will help you to understand all the things here. You should refer to the first three articles:

You are most welcome to read another article about quantum computing. Quantum circuit design is the analysis methodology, and a synthesis of quantum circuits that implement some or other algorithms (not only quantum ones). In a generalized sense, any computational process is represented in the form of a three (the input, the process of transformation, the output). Taking into account this consideration, the goals of quantum circuit design are:
