Physics Colloquium: Quantum-driven classical optimization

Prof. Helmut Katzgraber, Texas A and M / Microsoft

Abstract: The advent of the first useful quantum computing devices has resulted in an arms race with classical algorithms on traditional computing hardware. While near-term quantum devices might revolutionize, e.g., optimization and quantum chemistry, tackling many applications will directly depend on either hybrid or purely classical computing techniques. Inspired by these recent exciting developments, a variety of new classical algorithms have emerged. In this talk an overview on quantum inspired methods and their applications is given.
