The DeutschJozsa Problem: Dequantisation and Entanglement
, 2009
"... The DeustchJozsa problem is one of the most basic ways to demonstrate the power of quantum computation. Consider a Boolean function f: {0, 1} n →{0, 1} and suppose we have a blackbox to compute f. The DeutschJozsa problem is to determine if f is constant (i.e. f(x) = const, ∀x ∈{0, 1} n) or if f ..."

The DeustchJozsa problem is one of the most basic ways to demonstrate the power of quantum computation. Consider a Boolean function f: {0, 1} n →{0, 1} and suppose we have a blackbox to compute f. The DeutschJozsa problem is to determine if f is constant (i.e. f(x) = const, ∀x ∈{0, 1} n) or if f is balanced (i.e. f(x) = 0 for exactly half the possible input strings x ∈{0, 1} n) using as few calls to the blackbox computing f as is possible, assuming f is guaranteed to be constant or balanced. Classically it appears that this requires at least 2 n−1 + 1 blackbox calls in the worst case, but the well known quantum solution solves the problem with probability one in exactly one blackbox call. It has been found that in some cases the algorithm can be dequantised into an equivalent classical, deterministic solution. We explore the ability to extend this dequantisation to further cases, and examine with more detail when dequantisation is possible, both with respect to the DeutschJozsa problem, as well as in more general cases.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been widely used as a demonstrative medium for showcasing the ability for quantum computations to outperform classical ones. A large number of such experiments performed have been implementations of the DeutschJozsa algorithm. It is known, however, that in some cases the DeutschJozsa problem can be solved classically using as many queries to the blackbox as in the quantum solution. In this paper we describe experiments in which we take the contrasting approach of using NMR as a classical computing medium, treating the nuclear spin vectors classically and utilising an alternative embedding of bits into the physical medium. This allows us to determine the actual Boolean function computed by the blackbox for the n = 1, 2 cases, as opposed to only the nature (balanced or constant) as conventional quantum algorithms do. Discussion of these experiments leads to some clarification of the complications surrounding the comparison of different quantum algorithms, particularly blackbox type algorithms.

Deutsch’s problem is the simplest and most frequently examined example of computational problem used to demonstrate the superiority of quantum computing over classical computing. Deutsch’s quantum algorithm has been claimed to be faster than any classical ones solving the same problem, only to be discovered later that this was not the case. Various dequantised solutions for Deutsch’s quantum algorithm—classical solutions which are as efficient as the quantum one—have been proposed in the literature. These solutions are based on the possibility of classically simulating “superpositions”, a key ingredient of quantum algorithms, in particular, Deutsch’s algorithm. The dequantisation proposed in this note is based on a classical simulation of the quantum measurement achieved with a model of observed system. As in some previous dequantisations of Deutsch’s quantum algorithm, the resulting dequantised algorithm is deterministic. Finally, we classify observers (as finite state automata) that can solve the problem in terms of their “observational power”.
