Quantum combinatorial optimization algorithms
Time: 1:00 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Dr. Yuri Alexeev, Argonne Argonne National Laboratory
Abstract: Quantum computing is a promising area of science, but after 20+ years of tremendous research efforts and enormous investments large scale, general purpose, universal quantum computers capable of solving realistic problems are not yet available. However, small scale universal quantum computers and "quantum annealers" capable of tackling certain classical optimization problems are now available with limited access. In this talk, I will present our recent advances in the development of quantum combinatorial optimization algorithms like QAOA. I will also overview the state of quantum computing in Argonne National Laboratory.
