Quantum Algorithms


The quantum algorithm group at PGI 12 studies quantum algorithms for currently available Noisy-intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) computers and techniques to mitigate the effect of errors that affect these devices. We also study beyond NISQ quantum algorithms that would run on a fully error-corrected quantum computer and classical algorithms inspired by their quantum counterpart. The group is led by Tobias Stollenwerk.
