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.

This paper will guide computer scientists and other non-physicists through the barriers that separate quantum computing from conventional computing. We introduce basics of quantum mechanics to explain where the power of quantum computers comes from.

A quantum computing tutorial for everyone, including those who have no background in physics. In quantum computers we exploit quantum effects to compute in ways that are faster or more efficient than, or even impossible, on conventional computers.

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.

I rapidly review the basic notions of quantum physics and many primitives of quantum information. The second part is devoted to a detailed introduction to the topic of quantum correlations, covering the evidence for failure of alternative theories...
