  • We introduce novel algorithms for the quantum simulation of fermionic systems which are dramatically more efficient than those based on the Lie-Trotter-Suzuki decomposition. We present the first application of a general technique for simulating Hamiltonian evolution using a truncated Taylor series to obtain logarithmic scaling with the inverse of the desired precision. The key difficulty in applying ... read more
