Practical Sampling Schemes for Quantum Phase Estimation


In this talk I will introduce the quantum phase-estimation problem as well as the iterative algorithm by Kitaev that is commonly used to solve it. I show how Kitaev's algorithm can be modified to obtain an asymptotically minimal sampling complexity. Two novel algorithms for obtaining an initial phase estimate, used to start the iterative estimation proc
