Inverting a permutation is as hard as unordered search
We describe a reduction from the problem of unordered search (with a unique solution) to the problem of inverting a permutation. Since there is a straightforward reduction in the ...

Quantum Separation of Local Search and Fixed Point Computation
In this paper, we give a lower bound of (n(d-1)/2 ) on the quantum query complexity for finding a fixed point of a discrete Brouwer function over grid [1 : n]d . Our bound is near...

Polynomial Degree vs. Quantum Query Complexity
The degree of a polynomial representing (or approximating) a function f is a lower bound for the quantum query complexity of f. This observation has been a source of many lower bo...

Graph Properties and Circular Functions: How Low Can Quantum Query Complexity Go?
In decision tree models, considerable attention has been paid on the effect of symmetry on computational complexity. That is, for a permutation group Γ, how low can the complexit...

On the Quantum Query Complexity of Local Search in Two and Three Dimensions
The quantum query complexity of searching for local optima has been a subject of much interest in the recent literature. For the d-dimensional grid graphs, the complexity has been...

Negative weights make adversaries stronger
The quantum adversary method is one of the most successful techniques for proving lower bounds on quantum query complexity. It gives optimal lower bounds for many problems, has ap...
