Digital-analog quantum computation aims to reduce the currently infeasible resource requirements needed for near-term quantum information processing by replacing a series of two-qubit gates with a unitary transformation generated by the systems underlying Hamiltonian. Inspired by this paradigm, we consider superconducting architectures and extend the cross-resonance effect, up to first order in perturbation theory, from a pair of qubits to 1D chains and 2D square lattices. In an appropriate…

Fourier-based quantum signal processing
An algorithm for Hermitian-operator function design from an oracle given by the unitary evolution with respect to that operator at a fixed time is presented, which implements a Fourier approximation of the target function based on the iteration of a basic sequence of single-qubit gates, for which it is proved the expressibility.

The digital-analog paradigm is suited to the variational quantum approximate optimisation algorithm, due to its inherent resilience against coherent errors, by performing large-scale simulations and providing analytical bounds for its performance in devices with finite single-qubit operation times.
