Introduction to Quantum Algorithms for Physics and Chemistry
by Man-Hong Yung, et al.
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 44
In this introductory review, we focus on applications of quantum computation to problems of interest in physics and chemistry. We describe quantum simulation algorithms that have been developed for electronic-structure problems, thermal-state preparation, simulation of time dynamics, adiabatic quantum simulation, and density functional theory.

These notes will present a brief introduction to the basic theoretical concepts behind the 'second quantum revolution'. They also provide an introduction to 'circuit QED', which offers an architecture for constructing quantum information processors.

This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific theory is introduced.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.

This text surveys the state of the art in quantum computer algorithms, including both black-box and non-black-box results. A representative sample of quantum algorithms is given. This includes a summary of the early quantum algorithms, etc.
