Developing scalable quantum algorithms to study finite-temperature physics of quantum many-body systems has attracted considerable interest due to recent advancements in quantum hardware. However, such algorithms in their present form require resources that exceed the capabilities of current quantum computers except for a limited range of system sizes and observables. Here, we report calculations of finite-temperature properties including energies, static and dynamical correlation functions… Expand
