Noise-Resilient Quantum Dynamics Using Symmetry-Preserving Ansatzes

  title={Noise-Resilient Quantum Dynamics Using Symmetry-Preserving Ansatzes},
  author={Matthew Otten and Cristian L. Cortes and Stephen K. Gray},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
We describe and demonstrate a method for the computation of quantum dynamics on small, noisy universal quantum computers. This method relies on the idea of `restarting' the dynamics; at least one approximate time step is taken on the quantum computer and then a parameterized quantum circuit ansatz is optimized to produce a state that well approximates the time-stepped results. The simulation is then restarted from the optimized state. By encoding knowledge of the form of the solution in the…

An efficient quantum algorithm for the time evolution of parameterized circuits

A novel hybrid algorithm to simulate the real-time evolution of quantum systems using parameterized quantum circuits realizes an iterative, global projection of the exact time evolution onto the parameterized manifold, equivalent to the McLachlan's variational principle.

Characterization of variational quantum algorithms using free fermions

We study variational quantum algorithms from the perspective of free fermions. By deriving the explicit structure of the associated Lie algebras, we show that the Quantum Approximate Optimization

Variational dynamics as a ground-state problem on a quantum computer

We propose a variational quantum algorithm to study the real time dynamics of quantum systems as a ground-state problem. The method is based on the original proposal of Feynman and Kitaev to encode

Error mitigation with Clifford quantum-circuit data

A novel, scalable error-mitigation method that applies to gate-based quantum computers and obtains an order-of-magnitude error reduction for a ground-state energy problem on 16 qubits in an IBMQ quantum computer and on a 64-qubit noisy simulator.

Real- and Imaginary-Time Evolution with Compressed Quantum Circuits

It is shown that quantum circuits can provide a dramatically more efficient representation than current classical numerics of the quantum states generated under non-equilibrium quantum dynamics.

Qubit-efficient exponential suppression of errors

Achieving a practical advantage with near-term quantum computers hinges on having effective methods to suppress errors. Recent breakthroughs have introduced methods capable of exponentially

Variational Quantum Algorithms

An overview of the field of Variational Quantum Algorithms is presented and strategies to overcome their challenges as well as the exciting prospects for using them as a means to obtain quantum advantage are discussed.

Quantum Monte Carlo simulation of many-body dynamics with mitigated error on noisy quantum computer

This paper introduces a novel non-variational algorithm using quantum computing as a subroutine to accelerate quantum Monte Carlo and shows how this can reduce the Monte Carlo variance by orders of magnitude.

Ab initio molecular dynamics on quantum computers.

This work presents an approach to running AIMD simulations on noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ)-era quantum computers using the variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) method and demonstrates the validity of the method for larger molecules using full configuration interaction wave functions.

Variational quantum state eigensolver

The Variational Quantum State Eigensolver (VQSE) is introduced, which is analogous to VQE in that it variationally learns the largest eigenvalues of $\rho$ as well as a gate sequence that prepares the corresponding eigenvectors.
