Author(s): He, Andre; Nachman, Benjamin; Jong, Wibe A de; Bauer, Christian W | Abstract: In addition to readout errors, two-qubit gate noise is the main challenge for complex quantum algorithms on noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers. These errors are a significant challenge for making accurate calculations for quantum chemistry, nuclear physics, high energy physics, and other emerging scientific and industrial applications. There are two proposals for mitigating two-qubit gate… Expand

Digital zero noise extrapolation for quantum error mitigation
This work reviews the fundamentals of ZNE and proposes several improvements to noise scaling and extrapolation, the two key components in the technique, and introduces unitary folding and parameterized noise scaling. Expand
Error mitigation with Clifford quantum-circuit data
Achieving near-term quantum advantage will require accurate estimation of quantum observables despite significant hardware noise. For this purpose, we propose a novel, scalable error-mitigationExpand
Improving Hamiltonian encodings with the Gray code
This encoding is applied to the commonly-studied problem of finding the ground state energy of a deuteron with a simulated variational quantum eigensolver (VQE), and various trade-offs that arise are analyzed. Expand
Practical Quantum Computing: The value of local computation.
This paper discusses three key bottlenecks in near-term quantum computers: bandwidth restrictions arising from data transfer between central processing units (CPUs) and quantumprocessing units (QPUs), latency delays in the hardware for round-trip communication, and timing restrictions driven by high error rates.

Preparation of excited states on a quantum computer
We study two different methods to prepare excited states on a quantum computer, a key initial step to study dynamics within linear response theory. The first method uses unitary evolution for a shortExpand
Quantum simulation of open quantum systems in heavy-ion collisions.
We present a framework to simulate the dynamics of hard probes such as heavy quarks or jets in a hot, strongly-coupled quark-gluon plasma (QGP) on a quantum computer. Hard probes in the QGP can beExpand
Readout rebalancing for near-term quantum computers
Readout errors are a significant source of noise for near term intermediate scale quantum computers. Mismeasuring a qubit as a 1 when it should be 0 occurs much less often than mismeasuring a qubitExpand
Unified approach to data-driven quantum error mitigation
A novel, scalable error mitigation method that conceptually unifies ZNE and CDR, called variable-noise Clifford data regression (vnCDR), significantly outperforms these individual methods in numerical benchmarks. Expand
Unfolding quantum computer readout noise
In the current era of noisy intermediate-scale quantum computers, noisy qubits can result in biased results for early quantum algorithm applications. This is a significant challenge for interpretingExpand

SU(2) non-Abelian gauge field theory in one dimension on digital quantum computers
An improved mapping of one-dimensional SU(2) non-Abelian gauge theory onto qubit degrees of freedom is presented. This new mapping allows for a reduced unphysical Hilbert space. Insensitivity toExpand
Digitization of scalar fields for quantum computing
Qubit, operator and gate resources required for the digitization of lattice $\lambda\phi^4$ scalar field theories onto quantum computers are considered, building upon the foundational work by Jordan,Expand
Error mitigation extends the computational reach of a noisy quantum processor
This work applies the error mitigation protocol to mitigate errors in canonical single- and two-qubit experiments and extends its application to the variational optimization of Hamiltonians for quantum chemistry and magnetism. Expand
Fault-Tolerant Logical Gates in the IBM Quantum Experience.
It is demonstrated that a small but useful error detecting code improves the fidelity of the fault-tolerant gates implemented in the code space as compared to theidelity of physically equivalent gates implemented on physical qubits. Expand
