Role within PASQuanS 2
The work group of Prof. Dr. Jens Eisert is dedicated to conducting theoretical research on quantum simulation and computation. Within PASQuanS2.1, the group will provide a wide range of research activities supporting research on programmable quantum simulators. We bring in substantial expertise in devising schemes for quantum simulation and have a strong track record of collaboration with experimentalists. At the same time, we have expertise in developing verification techniques, tensor network benchmarks, new quantum simulation methods, and in assessing the computational complexity of a given simulation tasks. We will devise innovative schemes for quantum simulation to enhance the programmability of the platforms. It will develop verification techniques, tensor network benchmarks, and assess the computational complexity of given simulation tasks.
