Innsbruck Researchers Develop Method for Quantum Simulation of Complex Problems

By IQT News posted 29 May 2019

(InnovationOrigins) Physicists at the TU Innsbruck have succeeded in developing a self-verifying method for the simulation of complex quantum problems. This can be used in traffic planning, weather forecasting or molecular biology.
The researchers developed a programmed variation quantum simulator using the variation method known from theoretical physics. This allows the quantum simulator to be used as a quantum resource independent of the problem under investigation, explains Rick van Bijnen from the research team. In this way, the limitations of the conventional computer can be removed, and complex quantum mechanical calculations can be outsourced to the quantum coprocessor in the cloud.
