Quantum computing of the $^6$Li nucleus via ordered unitary coupled cluster

The variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) is an algorithm to compute ground and excited state energy of quantum many-body systems. A key component of the algorithm and an active research area is the

Time-dependent Hamiltonian Simulation Using Discrete Clock Constructions

This work provides a new approach for approximating an ordered operator exponential using an ordinary operator exponential that acts on the Hilbert space of the simulation as well as a finitedimensional clock register, and applies the formalism to show how qubitization can be generalized to the time-dependent case.



Structure and dynamics of few-nucleon systems

Few-nucleon physics is a field rich with high-quality experimental data and possibilities for accurate calculations of strongly correlated quantum systems. In this article the authors discuss the

Algorithm for quantum computation of particle decays

A quantum algorithm is developed to calculate decay rates and cross sections using quantum resources that scale polynomially in the system size assuming similar scaling for state preparation and time

Dynamical structure functions from quantum Monte Carlo calculations of a proper integral transform

An ab initio method for determining the dynamical structure function of an interacting many-body quantum system has been devised by combining a generalized integral transform method with quantum

Optimal quantum measurements of expectation values of observables

This work explicitly considers the issue of confidence level s in measuring observables and overlaps and shows that, as expected, confidence levels can be improved exponentially with linear overhead and can typically be parallelized with minimal increase in resource usage.

Preparation of excited states for nuclear dynamics on a quantum computer

These findings show that quantum techniques designed to achieve good asymptotic scaling on fault tolerant quantum devices might also provide practical benefits on devices with limited connectivity and gate fidelity.

Cloud Quantum Computing of an Atomic Nucleus.

This work designs a low-depth version of the unitary coupled-cluster ansatz, uses the variational quantum eigensolver algorithm, and compute the binding energy to within a few percent of the deuteron binding energy.

Simulating physical phenomena by quantum networks

Physical systems, characterized by an ensemble of interacting constituents, can be represented and studied by different algebras of operators (observables). For example, a fully polarized electronic

Ab Initio Computation of the Longitudinal Response Function in ^{40}Ca.

A consistent ab initio computation of the longitudinal response function R_{L} in ^{40}Ca is presented using the coupled-cluster and Lorentz integral transform methods starting from chiral nucleon-n nucleon and three-nucleon interactions, finding that final state interactions are essential for an accurate description of the data.

Dynamic linear response quantum algorithm

The dynamic linear response of a quantum system is critical for understanding both the structure and dynamics of strongly interacting quantum systems, including neutron scattering from materials,
