Computing and simulation

Information encoded in quantum states is manipulated to solve hard problems and probe quantum phenomena, such as simulations of quantum field theories and quantum machine learning and optimization algorithms for Monte Carlo event generators, event reconstruction, data analysis and object classification.

At FQI, scientists develop algorithms that are expressed as sets of tasks a quantum computer uses to solve a problem. Quantum gates are manipulations of the qubit state that are like computer instructions. They are arranged in quantum circuits that act on input qubits and end in measurements. Learn how Fermilab is developing quantum algorithms to solve some of the biggest challenges in physics.
