Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we give a description of a recent quantum algorithm created by Aharonov, Jones, and Landau for approximating the values of the Jones polynomial at roots of unity of the form e2πi/k. This description is given with two objectives in mind. The first is to describe the algorithm in such a way as to make explicit the underlying and inherent control structure. The second is to make this algorithm accessible to a larger audience.
