abstract = "Research in quantum technology has shown that quantum
computers can provide dramatic advantages over
classical computers for some problems. The efficiency
of quantum computing is considered to become so
significant that the study of quantum algorithms has
attracted widespread interest. Development of quantum
algorithms and circuits is difficult for a human
researcher, so automatic induction of computer programs
by means of genetic programming, which uses almost no
auxiliary information on the search space, proved to be
useful in generating new quantum algorithms. This
approach takes advantage of the intrinsic parallelism
of the genetic algorithm and quantum computing
parallelism. The paper begins with a brief review on
some basic concepts in genetic algorithms and quantum
computation. Next, it describes an application of
genetic programming for evolving quantum computing
circuits.",
