Inferring the quantum density matrix with machine learning

  title={Inferring the quantum density matrix with machine learning},
  author={Kyle Cranmer and Siavash Golkar and Duccio Pappadopulo},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
We introduce two methods for estimating the density matrix for a quantum system: Quantum Maximum Likelihood and Quantum Variational Inference. In these methods, we construct a variational family to model the density matrix of a mixed quantum state. We also introduce quantum flows, the quantum analog of normalizing flows, which can be used to increase the expressivity of this variational family. The eigenstates and eigenvalues of interest are then derived by optimizing an appropriate loss…

Solving quantum statistical mechanics with variational autoregressive networks and quantum circuits
An efficient variational algorithm is devised to jointly optimize the classical neural network and the quantum circuit to solve quantum statistical mechanics problems and obtain thermal observables such as the variational free energy, entropy, and specific heat.
Learning Potentials of Quantum Systems using Deep Neural Networks
The method, termed Quantum Potential Neural Networks (QPNN), can learn potentials in an unsupervised manner with remarkable accuracy for a wide range of quantum systems, such as the quantum harmonic oscillator, particle in a box perturbed by an external potential, hydrogen atom, Poschl--Teller potential, and a solitary wave system.
Ab-initio study of interacting fermions at finite temperature with neural canonical transformation
The variational density matrix approach to the thermal properties of interacting fermions in the continuum is parametrized by a permutation equivariant many-body unitary transformation together with a discrete probabilistic model and holds the promise to deliver new physical results on strongly correlated fermIONS in the context of ultracold quantum gases, condensed matter, and warm dense matter physics.

Estimating the Euclidean Quantum Propagator with Deep Generative Modelling of Feynman paths
This work proposes the concept of Feynman path generator, which efficiently generatesFeynman paths with fixed endpoints from a (low-dimensional) latent space, by targeting a desired density of paths in the Euclidean space-time.
Kernel Mean Embeddings of Von Neumann-Algebra-Valued Measures
Kernel mean embedding is generalized to that of von Neumann-algebra-valued measures into reproducing kernel Hilbert modules (RKHMs), which provides an inner product and distance between vonNeumann- algebra- valued measures.
Integrable Nonparametric Flows
It is found that choosing the flow to be an integrable vector field yields a solution closely related to electrostatics, and a solution can be computed by the method of Green's functions.
M* of Two-dimensional Electron Gas: a Neural Canonical Transformation Study
The newly developed neural canonical transformation approach offers a principled way to extract the effective mass of electron gas by directly calculating the thermal entropy at low temperature, and reveals a suppression of effective mass in the two-dimensional spin-polarized electron gas.

The learning algorithm learns a discrete field theory from a set of data of planetary orbits similar to what Kepler inherited from Tycho Brahe in 1601, and the serving algorithm correctly predicts other planetary orbits without learning or knowing Newton’s laws of motion and universal gravitation.
