Latest results show that classical computers retain an edge when simulating quantum chemistry problems – at least for now
Ieva Čepaitė is a PhD student contributor to Physics World and a quantum physics PhD student at the University of Strathclyde, UK. She has spent a large part of her academic career focusing on quantum computing, both from the computer science and theoretical physics perspectives. She adores everything to do with Information Theory and sometimes has too much energy. In her spare time she likes to play piano, talk about Category Theory, dance and climb in the Highlands.
Researchers demonstrate a fault-tolerant universal set of quantum operations for the first time on an ion-trap quantum computer
New algorithm shows that the competition between classical and quantum computation is far from over
Researchers postulate that the quantum Cheshire cat effect, in which a property of a quantum object becomes separated from the object itself, can have dynamics of its own
Quantum computing algorithms can simulate infinitely large quantum systems thanks to mathematical tools known as tensor networks
