Quantum Information Seminar
Ph.D. Graduate Student, Physics (Quantum Information)
One of the first applications of quantum computing was simulating the evolution of a closed system. In this talk, I will review Hamiltonian simulation techniques ranging from the earliest results for simulating Hamiltonian evolution to recent methods based on linear combination of unitaries and quantum signal processing. I will also discuss some of the open questions in Hamiltonian simulations.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
