Quantum algorithm for finding the negative curvature direction

ICLR 2020 Anonymous

We present an efficient quantum algorithm aiming to find the negative curvature direction for escaping the saddle point, which is a critical subroutine for many second-order non-convex optimization algorithms. We prove that our algorithm could produce the target state corresponding to the negative curvature direction with query complexity O(polylog(d)ε^(-1)), where d is the dimension of the optimization function...
