The NSA Wants Your Quantum Algorithms

NSA Funding Opportunity in Quantum Computing Algorithms: "

*The National Security Agency solicits proposals for one-year research grants in the area of Quantum Computing Algorithms. [...] We are not interested in funding work such as quantum error correction, which supports the 'infrastructure' of quantum computation but is not a quantum algorithm in our sense. We are more interested in algorithms related to number theory, algebra, and combinatorics than in topics such as physical modeling and database analysis.*"
