We analyze a new computational role of coherent multi-qubit quantum tunneling that gives rise to bands of non-ergodic extended (NEE) quantum states each formed by a superposition of a large number of computational states (deep local minima of the energy landscape) with similar energies. NEE provide a mechanism for population transfer (PT) between computational states and therefore can serve as a new quantum subroutine for quantum search, quantum parallel tempering and reverse annealing optimization algorithms...
