What is ‘Adiabatic’ Quantum Computing? Adiabatic quantum computation (AQC) is a form of quantum computing which relies on the adiabatic theorem to do calculations and is closely related to, and may be regarded as a subclass of, quantum annealing. First, a (potentially complicated) Hamiltonian is found whose ground state describes the solution to the problemContinue reading “The Imminent Failure of ‘Adiabatic’ Quantum Computing & Quantum Annealing!”
