  • Useful Quantum Computation For Quantum Chemistry

    - Winner CECAM-Lorentz call 2020 -
    22 - 26 February 2021
    It has been claimed that Quantum computers have crossed the supremacy barrier [1], solving a problem intractable
    on classical computers in any reasonable amount of time. However, the problem in question, random quantum circuit simulation,
    is of little interest to the wider world.
