Susan Stepney, John A. Clark.
Searching for Quantum Programs and Quantum Protocols: a review.

Journal of Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience 5(5):942-969, May 2008


We review how computational search techniques inspired by biological evolution have been used to discover quantum circuits and quantum algorithms. We discuss issues in representing quantum artefacts in a form suitable for evolutionary search, various quantum artefacts that have been discovered through evolutionary search, and future prospects for this approach.
