The problem of initializing a quantum superposition is important for Grover's algorithm, quantum neural networks and other applications. The purpose of the algorithm presented here is to generate a quantum array that initializes a desired quantum superposition on n qubits. The SQUID algorithm almost always creates quantum arrays that perform better than those created by existing algorithms such as the Ventura-Martinez and Long-Sun algorithms. The best case performance for the quantum arrays… CONTINUE READING
