BEIT

Approaching Hard Problems With Algorithms For Quantum Computers

About Us

We are a quantum computing software R&D company.

We develop novel quantum algorithms and their implementations with the aim of pushing the boundary of what is possible on quantum hardware at any given time. Thus we work on both practical software engineering within limits imposed by currently available quantum hardware as well as on speeding up theoretical algorithms giving us the edge wherever advances of hardware may take us. Our solutions offer to bring useful applications of quantum computers not only sooner, but with greater reliability and speed.

Recent activity

  1. Fixed-point Grover Adaptive Search for QUBO Problems

    We develop and optimize a novel Fixed-point Grover Adaptive Search for QUBO Problems based on our oracle design and previous works of Li et al. to obtain better performance guarantees than Gilliam et al.

  2. Anyons in a highly-entangled toric xy model

    We show that in some sense the only obstruction for a toric xy model to have a topological order is a \(U(1)\) gauge action.
