The Variational Quantum Eigensolver (VQE) is a promising algorithm for Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) computation. Verification and validation of NISQ algorithms’ performance on NISQ devices is an important task. We consider the exactly-diagonalizable Lipkin-MeshkovGlick (LMG) model as a candidate for benchmarking NISQ computers. We use the Bethe ansatz to construct eigenstates of the trigonometric LMG model using quantum circuits inspired by the LMG’s underlying algebraic structure… Expand

Quantum Computing in the NISQ era and beyond
Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) technology will be available in the near future, and the 100-qubit quantum computer will not change the world right away, but it should be regarded as a significant step toward the more powerful quantum technologies of the future. Expand
Quantum circuits for strongly correlated quantum systems
The method allows one to uncover the exact circuits corresponding to models that exhibit topological order and to stabilizer states, and opens up the possibility of experimentally producing strongly correlated states, their time evolution at zero time, and even thermal superpositions at zero temperature.
