Improved Quantum Communication Complexity Bounds for Disjointness and Equality

  title={Improved Quantum Communication Complexity Bounds for Disjointness and Equality},
  author={Peter H\oyer and Ronald de Wolf},
We prove new bounds on the quantum communication complexity of the disjointness and equality problems. For the case of exact and non-deterministic protocols we show that these complexities are all equal to n+1, the previous best lower bound being n/2. We show this by improving a general bound for non-deterministic protocols of de Wolf. We also give an O( √ n ·c ∗ )-qubit bounded-error protocol for disjointness, modifying and improving the earlier O( √ n logn) protocol of Buhrman, Cleve, and… CONTINUE READING
