In the paper we develop a method for constructing quantum alg orithms for computing Boolean functions by quantum ordered read-once branching programs (qua ntum OBDDs). Our method is based on fingerprinting technique and representation of Boolean f unctions by their characteristic polynomials. We use circuit notation for branching programs for desi red algorithms presentation. For several known functions our approach provides optimal QOBDDs. Name ly we consider such functions as MODm, EQn… CONTINUE READING
