QM Talks@CBPF: Pedro C. da Silva — 11.10, 16h00

Quantum Information Group @ CBPF

Next in our series QM Talks@CBPF is a talk by Pedro C. da Silva, PhD student here at CBPF. In this talk Pedro will show some interesting results he got during his stay in Maryland, collaborating with the group of Prof. Stephen P. Jordan. Be sure to be there! Details follow.

Title: Quantum Algorithm for Simulating the Wave Equation

Speaker: Pedro C. da Silva (CBPF)

Coordinates: room 601C, CBPF. 11.10, 16h00

Abstract: We present a quantum algorithm for simulating the wave equation under Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions. The algorithm uses Hamiltonian simulation and quantum linear system algorithms as subroutines. It relies on factorizations of discretized Laplacian operators to allow for improved scaling in truncation errors and improved scaling in state preparation relative to general purpose linear differential equation algorithms. We also consider using Hamiltonian simulation for Klein-Gordon equations and Maxwell’s equations.
