Infinite-range transverse field Ising models and quantum computation

  • J. Inoue
Part of the following topical collections:
  1. Quantum Annealing: The Fastest Route to Quantum Computation?


We present a brief review on information processing, computing and inference via quantum fluctuation, and clarify the relationship between the probabilistic information processing and theory of quantum spin glasses through the analysis of the infinite-range model. We also argue several issues to be solved for the future direction in the research field.
