Embedding theories for quantum simulations on hybrid classical-quantum architectures

One of the oft cited use cases for quantum computing is chemical simulation.  Giulia Galli of the University of Chicago, Chemistry, presents “Embedding theories for quantum simulations on hybrid classical-quantum architectures” at IPAM’s Multiscale Approaches in Quantum Mechanics Workshop. Abstract: We discuss a quantum embedding theory [1] to study spin-defects and impurities in solids, which […]

Kirsten Eisentraeger on Classical and quantum algorithms for isogeny problems

Kirsten Eisentraeger of Pennsylvania State University presents “Classical and quantum algorithms for isogeny problems” at IPAM’s Quantum Numerical Linear Algebra Workshop. Abstract: Isogeny-based cryptography is one of a few candidates for post-quantum cryptography. The computational problems relevant for isogeny-based cryptography are usually stated in terms of computing isogenies between elliptic curves, but they have other […]
