Title: QUANTUM SIMULATION
Abstract:
This disclosure relates quantum simulation, which enables the use of quantum systems as analog hardware simulators to simulate complex systems, such as high temperature superconductors, which have proven to be difficult to simulate with existing methods. In particular, this disclosure relates to simulating a first quantum system characterised by a first quantum interaction using a second, different quantum system. This is achieved by determining a set of stimulation pulse sequences to stimulate the second quantum system characterised by a second quantum interaction, such that the second quantum system evolves in substantially the same way as the first quantum system. The step of determining the set of stimulation pulse sequences comprises combining multiple basis pulse sequences according to a combination of basis functions. The combination of basis functions approximates a transformation of the second quantum interaction to the first quantum interaction.
