AWPP (complexity)

In theoretical computer science, Almost Wide Probabilistic Polynomial-Time (AWPP) is a complexity class for problems in the context of quantum computing.

AWPP contains the BQP (Bounded error, Quantum, Polynomial time) class, which contains the decision problems solvable by a quantum computer in polynomial time, with an error probability of at most 1/3 for all instances. In fact, it is the best known classical upper bound for BQP. Furthermore, it is contained in the APP class.
