Homework Help: Quantum Physics

Posted by qwerty on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 12:32am.

Suppose we ran m steps of Grover's algorithm on some function f (which has one marked element y) and the resulting superposition was exactly |y⟩.
If we run for m+1 additional steps (i.e. total of 2m+1 steps from the initial state), what is the resulting superposition? Note that you can describe the superposition by specifying two numbers, αy and αx for x≠y. You may use K to denote the total number of elements. (K should be uppercase.) HINT: You may want to review Problems 2, 3, and 5 of Assignment 6.
αy :
αx for x≠y:
Now if we run for another m steps, what is the resulting superposition?
αy :
αx for x≠y:
What about after yet another m+1 steps?
αy :
αx for x≠y:
