Fourth Quantum Computing Tutorial

Argonne National Laboratory will host an online Fourth Quantum Computing Tutorial on June 14-18, 2021. The tutorial is designed to provide hands-on experience programming IBM quantum computers using Qiskit and quantum simulators.

Participants will learn the basics of how to formulate and solve quantum chemistry and combinatorial optimization problems using Qiskit. The presentations will assume little to no prior knowledge of quantum computation. The examples will be provided of how problems can be solved using the VQE (Variational Quantum Eigensover) and QAOA (Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm) approaches. The tutorial will be interactive and will use Jupyter notebooks to explain step by step how to formulate problems for VQE and QAOA. We will provide step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problems from the ground up with as little hidden complexity as possible. These easily customizable code snippets will allow attendees to skip straight to adapting it to their problems as well as to applying their own research.

Participants will also learn how to use Argonne-developed quantum simulator QTensor, the SeQUeNCe quantum network simulator, and Atos simulator myQLM.

The recommended way to run the hands-on Jupyter notebooks is using IBM Quantum Experience web interface.

Mobile notebooks will be available from github in advance of the workshop.
