The natural Hilbert Space of quantum particles can implement maximumlikelihood (ML) decoding of classical information. The ’Quantum Product Algorithm’ (QPA) is computed on a Factor Graph, where function nodes are unitary matrix operations followed by appropriate quantum measurement. QPA is like the Sum-Product Algorithm (SPA), but without summary, giving optimal decode with exponentially finer detail than achievable using SPA. Graph cycles have no effect on QPA performance. QPA must be repeated… CONTINUE READING
