DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Kristel Michielsen (FZ Juelich)\nA quantum computer
(QC) is a device that performs operations according to the rules of quantu
m theory. There are various types of QCs of which nowadays the two most im
portant ones considered for practical realization are the gate-based QC an
d the quantum annealer (QA). Practical realizations of gate-based QCs cons
ist of less than 100 qubits while QAs with more than 2000 qubits are comme
rcially available.\n\nWe present results of simulating on the IBM Quantum
Experience devices with 5 and 16 qubits\, on the CAS-Alibaba device with 1
1 qubits and on the D-Wave 2X QA with more than 1000 qubits. Simulations o
f both types of QCs are performed by first modeling them as quantum system
s of interacting spin-1/2 particles and then emulating their dynamics by s
olving the time-dependent SchrÃ¶dinger equation. Our software allows for t
he simulation of a 48-qubit gate-based universal QC on the Sunway TaihuLig
ht and K supercomputers.\n\nReferences:\nK. Michielsen\, M. Nocon\, D. Wil
