"Classical and Quantum Annealing"
ABSTRACT:
An informal talk about the quantum adiabatic algorithm for solving optimization problems using a quantum computer, and about attempts to simulate this algorithm on classical computers using quantum Monte Carlo. Interestingly, the child's puzzle in this YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyWXPJSSRw8 will have direct applications to this problem.
