In contrast, Shor’s quantum integer factorization algorithm achieves polynomial runtime complexity [82]. Descriptions of this algorithm can be quite complicated when delving into the details of phase estimation and number theory, each of which is heavily used by the algorithm. However, an intuitive understanding of how quantum mechanics is exploited to speed up factoring can be readily developed, as the following example shows. Suppose we wish to factor the integer 15. We will perform some seemingly peculiar steps to do this, and later explain what the steps mean in general.

In other words, Shor uses entanglement and superposition to compute all possible outcomes for f (x) simultaneously [82]. The circuit implementation details of Shor’s algorithm can be quite complicated. 7. First, two registers of qubits are initialized. One register will contain the superposition for the inputs x, and the other will contain a superposition of the outputs of f (x). The number of qubits n in both registers is on the order of log N . Different implementations use various multiples of this 46 4 Quantum Information Processing |0 / |1 / H ⊗n • FT† FE ax mod N Fig.
