Quantum algorithms can be analyzed in a query model to compute Boolean functions. Function input is provided in a black box, and the aim is to compute the function value using as few queries to the black box as possible. A repetition code is an error detection scheme that repeats each bit of the original message r times. After a message with redundant bits is transmitted via a communication channel, it must be verified. If the received message consists of r-size blocks of equal bits, the conclusion is that there were no errors. The verification procedure can be interpreted as an application of a query algorithm, where input is a message to be checked. Classically, for N-bit message, values of all N variables must be queried. We demonstrate an exact quantum algorithm that uses only N/2 queries.
