Over the last several years quantum simulation has emerged as arguably the preeminent application for quantum computers. In this period the field has seen massive growth culminating in advanced quantum simulation algorithms that are provably near-optimal for general purpose solution of the Schrodinger equation. However, recently new methods have been developed that can exploit properties of a... More >
