DESCRIPTION:Quantum computing is emerging as a new paradigm for the solutio
n of a wide class of problems that are not accessible by conventional high
performance classical computers. Quantum computers can in principle effic
iently solve problems that require exponential resources on classical hard
ware\, even when using the best known classical algorithms. In the last fe
w years\, several interesting solutions with potential quantum speedup hav
e been brought forward in the domain of quantum physics\, like the quantum
phase estimation and the hybrid variational quantum eigensolver [1] for t
he solution of optimization problems. The original idea that a quantum com
puter can potentially solve many-body quantum mechanical problems more eff
iciently than classical computers is due toR. Feynman who proposed the use
of quantum algorithms to investigate the fundamental properties of nature
at the quantum scale. In particular\, the solution of the electronic stru
cture and statistical mechanics problems is a challenging computational ta
sk as the number of resources increases exponentially with the number of d
egrees of freedom. Thanks to the development of new quantum technologies w
itnessed over the last decades\, we have now the possibility to address th
is class of problems with the help quantum computers. To achieve this goal
\, new quantum algorithms able to best exploit the potential quantum speed
up of state-of-the-art noisy quantum hardware have also been developed [2\
,3]. In this talk\, I will first introduce the basics of quantum computing
using superconducting qubits\, focusing on those aspects that are crucial
for the implementation of quantum chemistry and physics algorithms. In th
e second part\, I will highlight the potential advantages of the new gener
ation of quantum algorithms for applications in electronic structure calcu
lations for ground [4] and excited states [5]\, molecular dynamics [6]\, a
nd statistical physics [7].\, Vortragende(r): Dr. Ivano Tavernelli
