Tunneling in Quantum Adiabatic Optimization
This talk will address several aspects of tunneling when attempting quantum adiabatic optimization (QAO). First, I derive how the width and height of potential barriers affect the minimal spectral gap of the QAO algorithm. This derivation uses elementary techniques and confirms and extends an unpublished folklore result by Goldstone. Next,
