Researchers draw inspiration from ancient Alexandria to optimize quantum simulations

Researchers at the University of Chicago have developed an algorithm inspired by ancient Alexandria’s geometric methods to enhance quantum simulations. The new algorithm combines random sampling with physical constraints, reducing the number of measurements needed to simulate molecular systems. This approach leverages shadow tomography and the two-electron reduced density matrix method, improving accuracy and efficiency in predicting electronic properties of molecules. This advancement brings quantum computers closer to outperforming classical computers in molecular simulations, potentially aiding in the development of new materials and therapeutics.
