Quantum Simulation with quantum computers

on 10-07-2019

... Joaquin Fernandez Rossier, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, in Braga, Portugal

Date & time: Wednesday, July 10th, 10:00h
Location: Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Room P3.10, Mathematics Building

In this seminar Joaquin Rossier will do 3 things:
He will review why quantum many-body problem is very important and can not be dealt with using classical computers;
He will discuss the use of digital quantum computers to tackle the many body problem;
He will discuss our quantum computations for quantum simulation of simple model Hamiltonians using IBM quantum hardware.

Joaquin Rossier is a condensed matter physicist. He holds both a Diploma (1994) and a Phd (1999) on Physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He stayed 2 years (99-01) as a postdoctoral researcher at the Physics Department of the University of California San Diego and 18 months (01-03) at the Physics Department of the University of Texas at Austin. In 2003 he obtained a "Ramon y Cajal" assistant professor position in the Universidad de Alicante (UA). He was promoted to a permanent position in 2008 and to associate professor (professor titular) in 2009. Since 2011 he is on leave from the UA and holds a tenured research staff position at the INL (Braga, Portugal). More Information..
