New paper on quantum algorithms

Steve BrierleyNewsLeave a Comment

There are many quantum algorithms that exhibit an advantage over known classical algorithms. Such a diversity of results can make it difficult to express the computational capability of a quantum computer in a clear and faithful manner to someone new … Read More

VQC Demo Released

Oscar HiggottNewsLeave a Comment

We have released a demo of our VirtualQC! Whereas the best general-purpose quantum simulators can only simulate up to around 50 qubits, our quantum emulator utilises the structure of quantum algorithms to allow up to 205 qubits to be emulated … Read More

New Paper Published

Daochen WangNewsLeave a Comment

We have published a new paper describing a new quantum algorithm for chemistry calculations on a quantum computer. Our paper generalises an earlier hybrid quantum-classical algorithm named the Variational Quantum Eigensolver by modifying its quantum subroutine. Our modification enables any quantum … Read More
