Integrating Quantum Computers in Condensed Matter Physics Simulations

Prof Liviu Chioncel

Keywords: Condensed matter, Quantum computer

Quantum computers open a new paradigm for potentially exponential improvement in computational speed for certain tasks when compared to classical computers. Noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) computers are already available, and larger and noiseless quantum computers are expected within the next 10 years. This has sparked a large interest for quantum computing applications for condensed matter physics. The field of quantum physics calculations on quantum computers (QC) is less than 15 years old, yet it has experienced explosive growth in the last couple of years with thousands of new publications a year. This mini-colloquium will bring together experts from the quantum computing community with experts in condensed matter to give an overview of the field and of current developments, and to generate ideas for further quantum computing applications within condensed matter physics. The event is co-organised with EPSRC funded Computational Collaborative Project on Quantum Computing[1] and co-sponsored by Computational Collaborative Project No 5[2], No 9[3] and CECAM[4] (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) UK Daresbury node
