Abstract

Quantum simulation is one of the most promising applications of quantum computers. In this talk, I will introduce my research on quantum simulation, including variational quantum simulation, digital quantum simulation algorithms, and the verification of quantum simulators. These works improve the understanding and the performance of quantum simulation and pave the way for the practical use of quantum simulation.
