Quantum vs. Classical Read-Once Branching Programs

06111.SauerhoffMartin.Paper.616.pdf (0.3 MB)


A simple, explicit boolean function on 2n input bits is presented that is
computable by errorfree quantum read-once branching programs of size
O(n^3), while each classical randomized read-once branching program
and each quantum OBDD for this function with bounded two-sided error
requires size 2^{omega(n)}.
