Probabilistic Generation of Quantum Contextual Sets

By Norman D. Megill, Kresimir Fresl, Mordecai Waegell, P. K. Aravind and Mladen Pavicic


We give a method for exhaustive generation of a huge number of Kochen-Specker contextual sets, based on the 600-cell, for possible experiments and quantum gates. The method is complementary to our previous parity proof generation of these sets, and it gives all sets while the parity proof method gives only sets with an odd number of edges in their hypergraph representation. Thus we obtain 35 new kinds of critical KS sets with an even number of edges. Using a random sample of the sets generated with our method, we give a statistical estimate of the number of sets that might be obtained in an eventual exhaustive enumeration.Comment: 22 pages, 7 figure
