Accurate quantum chemistry simulations remain challenging on classical computers for problems of industrially relevant sizes and there is reason for hope that quantum computing may help push the boundaries of what is technically feasible. While variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) algorithms may already turn noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) devices into useful machines, one has to make all efforts to use the scarce quantum resources as efficiently as possible. We combine the so-called…

Quantum simulation and ground state preparation for the honeycomb Kitaev model
We propose a quantum protocol that allows preparing a ground state (GS) of the honeycomb Kitaev model. Our approach efficiently uses underlying symmetries and techniques from topological error
Solving nonlinear differential equations with differentiable quantum circuits
A hybrid quantum-classical workflow where DQCs are trained to satisfy differential equations and specified boundary conditions is described, and how this approach can implement a spectral method for solving differential equations in a high-dimensional feature space is shown.

Optimized low-depth quantum circuits for molecular electronic structure using a separable-pair approximation
This work employs directly determined pair-natural orbitals within a basis-set-free approach to lead to accurate representation of the oneand many-body parts for weakly correlated systems and explicitly illustrates how the model can be integrated into variational and projective quantum algorithms for stronger correlated systems.
Reducing Qubit Requirements while Maintaining Numerical Precision for the Variational Quantum Eigensolver: A Basis-Set-Free Approach.
This work directly determined pair-natural orbitals on the level of second-order perturbation theory results in compact qubit Hamiltonians with high numerical accuracy and demonstrates reductions in the quantum circuits through the structure of the pair- natural orbitals.
Microcanonical and finite-temperature ab initio molecular dynamics simulations on quantum computers
Ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) is a powerful tool to predict properties of molecular and condensed matter systems. The quality of this procedure is based on accurate electronic structure


Quantum computational chemistry
This review presents strategies employed to construct quantum algorithms for quantum chemistry, with the goal that quantum computers will eventually answer presently inaccessible questions, for example, in transition metal catalysis or important biochemical reactions.
Tapering off qubits to simulate fermionic Hamiltonians
It is shown that encodings with a given filling fraction $\nu=N/M$ and a qubit-per-mode ratio $\eta=Q/M<1$ can be constructed from efficiently decodable classical LDPC codes with the relative distance $2\nu$ and the encoding rate $1-\eta$.
