Lov Grover

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lov Kumar Grover (* 1960 in Merath , India ) is an Indian-American computer scientist who, with the development of the Grover algorithm , has proven for the first time that quantum computers are faster than classic computers.

Grover studied at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi until 1981 and received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University . He then went to Bell Laboratories , but interrupted his work there from 1987 to 1995 for an assistant professor at Cornell University .

Back at Bell Labs in 1996 he developed the search algorithm that is now named after him and in 1998 generalized it to a large number of important problems in computer science. In 2000 he also developed a quantum algorithm that allowed fuzzy retrieval .
