Quantum Algorithms for Cryptographically Significant Boolean Functions: An Ibmq Experience
Sapv, Tharrmashastha, Bera, Debajyoti, Maitra, Arpita
This book is a timely report of the state-of-the-art analytical techniques in the domain of quantum algorithms related to Boolean functions. It bridges the gap between recent developments in the area and the hands-on analysis of the spectral properties of Boolean functions from a cryptologic viewpoint. Topics covered in the book include Qubit, Deutsch-Jozsa and Walsh spectrum, Grover's algorithm, Simon's algorithm and autocorrelation spectrum. The book aims at encouraging readers to design and implement practical algorithms related to Boolean functions. Apart from combinatorial techniques, this book considers implementing related programs in a quantum computer. Researchers, practitioners and educators will find this book valuable.
