Brief description This project aims to develop more efficient algorithms to simulate quantum chemistry on quantum computers. Quantum computers have the potential to perform calculations that would be intractable for even the largest supercomputers, but need to be programmed in a radically different way to achieve this speed. One of the most important applications of quantum computers is to simulate quantum mechanics to predict the properties of molecules and materials, and thereby design them. Current quantum algorithms are very resource intensive, making them impractical for the foreseeable future. The expected outcome of this project is to provide much more efficient algorithms that can be run on quantum processors in the near future.
