    We introduce a novel approach to simulate dynamical (linear) systems (quantum or otherwise) parallel in time using quantum annealers. In particular,  we describe how the solution state vector can be found by solving a specifically crafted system of linear equations. Moreover, we demonstrate that such systems can, in fact, be effectively solved (up to a given precision) with Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization. This naturally leads to a class of hybrid classical-quantum algorithms that can be implemented and executed on near-term quantum annealers.

    In this presentation I am goin to show models, algorithms and computational results of CFA (Capacity and Flow Assignment) problem in multi-layer networks. The idea of multilayer, based on MPLS over DWDM architecture, is as follows. The logical links given by paths allocated to demands of the upper layer are constructed using light-paths of the lower layer. In the upper layer we introduce two kinds of traffics: uni-cast (one-to-one) and any cast (one-to-one-of-many).

    We conduct experimental simulations of many-body quantum systems using a hybrid classical-quantum algorithm. In our setup, the wave function of the transverse field quantum Ising model is represented by a restricted Boltzmann machine.

    While machine learning techniques are very powerful, they have some weaknesses, like iterative optimization with many local minimums, large freedom of parameters, lack of their interpretability and accuracy control. From the other side we have classical statistics based on moments not having these issues, but providing only a rough description. I will talk about approach which combines their advantages: with MSE-optimal moment-like coefficients, but designed such that we can directly translate them into probability density. For multivariate case such basis of mixed

    A new method for constructing a digital water-marking based on the Ateb-functions is proposed. This new approach belongs to methods of protecting images based on hiding data in the frequency domain. It is a generalization the well-known method using Fourier transform. The proposed method, based on the two dimension Discrete Ateb Transform is resistant to most types of attacks. Our experiments prove its efficiency and stability.
