We propose a scheme to restore spatial symmetry of Hamiltonian in the variational-quantum-eigensolver (VQE) algorithm for which the quantum circuit structures used usually break the Hamiltonian symmetry. The symmetry-adapted VQE scheme introduced here simply applies the projection operator, which is Hermitian but not unitary, to restore the spatial symmetry in a desired irreducible representation of the spatial group. The entanglement of a quantum state is still represented in a quantum circuit…
