Speech Title: Distributed quantum algorithm for Simon's problem
Limited by today's physical devices, quantum circuits are usually noisy and difficult to be designed deeply. The novel computing architecture of distributed quantum computing is expected to reduce the noise and depth of quantum circuits. In this talk, we present the Simon's problem in distributed scenarios and design a distributed quantum algorithm to solve the problem. The algorithm proposed by us has the advantage of exponential acceleration compared with the classical distributed computing, and has the advantage of square acceleration compared with the best distributed quantum algorithm proposed before. In particular, the previous distributed quantum algorithm for Simon's problem cannot be extended to the case of more than two computing nodes (i.e. two subproblems), but our distributed quantum algorithm can be extended to the case of multiple computing nodes (i.e. multiple subproblems) as well.
