We give two complete characterizations of unitary quantum space-bounded classes. The first is based on the Matrix Inversion problem for well-conditioned matrices. We show that given the size-n efficient encoding of a 2O(k(n))×2O(k(n)) well-conditioned matrix H, approximating a particular entry of H−1 is complete for the class of problems solvable by a quantum algorithm that uses O(k(n)) space and performs all quantum measurements at the end of the computation. In particular, the problem of computing entries of H−1 for an explicit well-conditioned n×n matrix H is complete for unitary quantum logspace.
