Appling Quantum for simple matrix calculation

I am new to quantum computing and wanted to know if I can use quantum computing for simple matrix calculations. If yes, how to do it and does it provide any improvements over classical computing?



  • Hi Prajjaval,

    Thank you for using D-Wave Systems. Can you please clarify what type of "simple matrix calculation" you are referring to?

    Quantum Annealing can be used in certain types of Matrix calculations. Please refer to the following papers, demonstrating the utilization of Quantum Annealing for two types of Matrix Calculations:

    Please let us know if you need any further clarification.

    With kind regards,

  • How can I find the code for matrix inversion using Quantom Annealing. Is it faster than classical methods like, direct methods, multigrid methods in large scale matrx with millions of rows and columns?

  • Hello,

    The paper mentioned above includes information on implementation of Matrix Inversion on the Quantum Annealer, but it does not look as though the publishers of the paper provided any code examples. I'm not sure if they have made their code available somewhere, but if you are interested in reproducing their results, you might find the Problem-Solving Handbook helpful in getting started.
