QC WORKSHOP 23: Quantum Chemstry jump starter

Quantum chemistry simulation is one of the most promising directions for achieving practical quantum advantage. For people interested in understanding the basic of quantum chemistry and its implementation, we start this three-lecture workshop. Through this workshop audiences will develop intuitions in the quantum mechanics and chemistry concepts. Such intuitions can be an anchor point for interdisciplinary collaborations or a starting point for further self-study.

Lecture 1 will cover the basic concepts in quantum chemistry, including: basis set, spin orbital, Slater determinant, Hartree-Fock, and full configuration interaction (FCI).

Lecture 2 explains the popular method to map a quantum chemistry problem into a variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) problem, including: second quantization, Jordan Wigner transformation, Trotterization, and unitary to quantum circuit mapping.

Lecture 3 will demonstrate the typical workflow for running the VQE simulation on a laptop. You will learn how to get approach actual quantum chemistry problems with Psi4, Cirq and OpenFermion.

主讲人介绍:

Qingfeng (Kee) Wang is a Ph.D. candidate in chemical physics at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is currently physically located at Duke Quantum Center, under the supervision of Dr. Chris Monroe. He got his master’s degree in computational chemistry at Emory University in 2018. Kee has been collaborating with IonQ since 2018 on improving variational quantum eigensolver, resulting in two patents.

QC WORKSHOP 20: INTRO TO QUANTUM ERROR MITIGATION

In the Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) era, we are limited by the number of qubits, coherence time, and gate fidelity. While Quantum Error Correction (QEC) is on its way, we still want to get meaningful results from such noisy quantum devices. It naturally introduces the idea of Error Mitigation (EM), which aims at recovering the ideal measurement statistics instead of the ideal output state in QEC, as a transition stage toward the fault-tolerant regime.

主讲人介绍:

Zhixin Song is currently a Physics Ph.D. student at Georgia Institute of Technology. He has previously done an internship at Baidu Research, Institute for Quantum Computing, working on Variational Quantum Algorithms (VQAs) and a Quantum Machine Learning toolkit called Paddle Quantum. His current research focuses on experimental quantum simulation, optimal quantum control, and quantum many-body systems.

通过本次活动可以学习到:

  1. Different types of quantum noise
  2. Error mitigation (EM) methods including Zero Noise Extrapolation (ZNE), Probabilistic Error Cancellation (PEC), and Dynamical Decoupling (DD)

  4. Connection with classical shadows
  5. Recent experimental progress

QC WORKSHOP 18: Quantum Simulation Using Atoms and Ions

在过去的二十年里,用于研究多体系统的量子模拟和计算方法发展出了两类互补的方案。自上而下的方案通过对多粒子体系进行全局相互作用来模拟匀质体系。自下而上的方案通过整合多个可被高精度控制的粒子来构建大型系统。本次报告将介绍属于自上而下方案的玻色-爱因斯坦凝聚体量子模拟系统和属于自下而上方案的离子阱量子计算系统。在介绍技术细节的基础上,我们将进一步讨论应用这些体系来研究多种物理问题。

Quantum Simulation and computation on many-body systems has branched to two complementary strategies over the last two decades. The top-down strategy uses ensembles of many particles with control over global interactions, where the granular details can be ignored and the ensemble can be treated as a smooth medium. The bottom-up strategy uses high-fidelity control over individual particles and builds large many-body systems by assembling them together. In this talk, I will talk about both approaches with Bose-Einstein condensates in the top-down approach and trapped ions in the bottom-up approach. Building on the interacting atomic quantum system, we will talk about investigating interesting physics ranging from condensed matter to cosmology, such as quantum phase transition, spin domain confinement, many-body localizations and even Unruh radiations.

主讲人介绍: Dr. Lei Feng works on quantum simulation and quantum computing at Duke University. His current postdoctoral research focuses on building a new generation of programmable quantum computing platform using trapped Yb ions. Lei got his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Chicago on quantum simulation using ultra-cold neutral atoms, where Bose-Einstein Condensation is used to study phase transitions and matter-wave radiations. He is also a winner of Sidney Nagel Prize for Creativity in Research and the OCPA Outstanding Dissertation Award.
