The fundamental mandate of the workshop, co-organized by Professors Tom Coleman and Michele Mosca, is to provide a forum for both scientific presentations and discussion of issues related to quantum optimization. Optimization researchers will learn about the quantum technology and methodologies and the quantum researchers will learn about hard optimization problems that may yield to quantum optimization approaches.

If p(G,k) denotes the number of matchings of size k in the graph G and n=|V(G)|, then the matching polynomial of G is

m(G,t) = \sum_k p(G,k) (-1)^k t^{n-2k}.
