Learning finite automata (termed as model learning) has become an important field in machine learning and has been useful realistic applications. Quantum finite automata (QFA) are simple models of quantum computers with finite memory. Due to their simplicity, QFA have well physical realizability, but one-way QFA still have essential advantages over classical finite automata with regard to state complexity (two-way QFA are more powerful than classical finite automata in computation ability as…

- Computer ScienceProceedings 39th Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (Cat. No.98CB36280)

This work constructs a 1-way QFA that is exponentially smaller than any equivalent classical (even randomized) finite automaton, and thinks that this construction may be useful for design of other space-efficient quantum algorithms.

This paper characterize the measure-once model when it is restricted to accepting with bounded error and show that, without that restriction, it can solve the word problem over the free group and shows that piecewise testable sets can be accepted with boundederror by a measure-many quantum finite automaton, introducing new construction techniques for quantum automata in the process.

It is proved that the class of languages recognizing by linear time, bounded error 2qfa's properly includes the regular languages, and 1-way and 2-way quantum finite state automata are introduced, which are the quantum analogues of deterministic, nondeterministic and probabilistic 1- way and2-way finite state Automata.
