Quantum algorithms for quantum simulation and small devices


Quantum computers offer important speed-ups in the solution

of a variety of problems. One of them is the simulation of quantum many-body

systems, as they appear in atomic, condensed matter or high-energy physics,

or quantum chemistry. Other, like SAT, are related to classical optimization

problems. In this talk I will first review some of the quantum algorithms to

simulate the equilibrium and dynamics of quantum many-body systems. Then

I will present a hybrid quantum-classical algorithm to solve SAT problems

with (relatively) small quantum devices.
