Benchmarking GPU Clusters with the Jülich Universal Quantum Computer Simulator

The PGI Science Office has begun a new series of seminars: the "Jülich Quantum Computing Seminar" will take place every fortnight on Tuesdays at 15:00 via video conference and is intended to promote cooperation between the working groups conducting research in the field of quantum computing and quantum information at various institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Here is the access data for all the seminars:

Simulating quantum computers is a versatile way to benchmark supercomputers such as JUWELS Booster, a cluster with 3,744 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs.

We explain quantum computer simulators from a linear algebra perspective, using the Jülich Universal Quantum Computer Simulator (JUQCS) and the Jülich Quantum Master Equation Solver (JUQMES) as examples. JUQCS is a massively parallel simulator that was also used for Google's quantum supremacy experiments.

New feature:

We are adding a new feature to our seminar series! For those of you who would like to get to know each other a little better after the regular seminar ends, you can use the following link to meet up informally in a virtual space on the "wonder" ( ) platform to enjoy an online gathering that should prove both interesting and fun:
