CFN Colloquium

"Fermi systems and quantum computing"

Presented by Antonio Mezzacapo, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center

Thursday, January 3, 2019, 4:00 pm — CFN, Bldg 735, 2nd Floor Seminar Room

Solving correlated Fermi systems is a problem of ubiquitous importance in the fields of chemistry, materials science and fundamental interactions. Quantum computers can help addressing this type of challenges, provided that descriptions of Fermi systems are loaded onto a set of qubits. In this talk I will review methods to represent Fermi quantum states and interactions onto a set of qubits, how to optimize mapping procedures, and how these methods are used to perform computations on quantum hardware. I will then introduce connections between such mappings and stabilizer codes, showing that adequate encodings can account for the correction of single-qubit errors. Finally, I will show how the tools presented can have an impact on classical numerical methods.
