Calculation of generating function in many-body systems with quantum computers: technical challenges and use in hybrid quantum-classical methods
The generating function of a Hamiltonian H is defined as F (t) = 〈e−itH〉, where t is the time and where the expectation value is taken on a given initial quantum state. This function gives access to
