A new paper from the Hub, focussing on the hardware requirements for Hybrid Quantum-Classical DMFT, has been published on the IOP Quantum Science and Technology journal.
Abstract: We numerically emulate noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices and determine the minimal hardware requirements for two-site hybrid quantum–classical dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). We develop a circuit recompilation algorithm which significantly reduces the number of quantum gates of the DMFT algorithm and find that the quantum–classical algorithm converges if the two-qubit gate fidelities are larger than 99%. The converged results agree with the exact solution within 10%, and perfect agreement within noise-induced error margins can be obtained for two-qubit gate fidelities exceeding 99.9%. By comparison, the quantum–classical algorithm without circuit recompilation requires a two-qubit gate fidelity of at least 99.999% to achieve perfect agreement with the exact solution. We thus find quantum–classical DMFT calculations can be run on the next generation of NISQ devices if combined with the recompilation techniques developed in this work.
