 Introduction to Quantum Algorithms for Physics Applications
Dr. Guglielmo Mazzola 
(IBM Quantum & IBM Zurich Research Lab)
I will introduce basic concepts of quantum computation, highlighting the key properties of a typical quantum algorithm compared to its classical counterpart.
I will provide concrete examples of quantum primitives (i.e. hamiltonian simulation, quantum phase estimation) that will enable solving important physical problems (in quantum chemistry, electronic structure, or lattice gauge theories), with an exponential speedup, or that can be used in quantum machine learning for classification problems.
Finally, I will discuss challenges and prospects in achieving a practical quantum advantage in the near future.
The Colloquium Series in Theoretical and Computational Physics targets the whole physicists community, physics students at all levels are particularly welcomed to attend.
The colloquium will last 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of discussion.


Looking forward to seeing you there!
