    Grover's quantum computational search procedure can provide the basis for implementing adaptive global optimization algorithms. A brief overview of the procedure is given and a framework called Grover adaptive search is set up. A method of Dürr and Høyer and one introduced by the authors fit into this framework and are compared.
