Establishing the nature of the ground state of the Heisenberg antiferromagnet (HAFM) on the kagome lattice is well known to be a prohibitively difficult problem for classical computers. Here, we give a detailed proposal for a Variational Quantum Eigensolver (VQE) with the aim of solving this physical problem on a quantum computer. At the same time, this VQE constitutes an explicit proposal for showing a useful quantum advantage on Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices because of its… Expand

Frustrated antiferromagnets with entanglement renormalization: ground state of the spin-1/2 Heisenberg model on a kagome lattice.
Entanglement renormalization techniques are applied to numerically investigate the ground state of the spin-1/2 Heisenberg model on a kagome lattice and the best approximation to the groundstate is found to be a valence bond crystal with a 36-site unit cell. Expand
