Introductory days to quantum computing for physics and chemistry

19-20 January 2023, Grenoble
organized by GDR REST and GDR NBODY


  • Location: Université Grenoble Alpes, Bâtiment IMAG, Grenoble, France.


Research on quantum computing is rapidly growing and has the potential to reshape simulations in physics and chemistry. These two days aim at providing a pedagogical introduction to this field for the communities of the GDR REST and NBODY, i.e. theoretical physicists, chemists, and applied mathematicians working on the quantum many-body problem. These days are not targeted to experts in quantum computing but rather to people who want to discover this new field.


We will have four lectures:

  • Bruno Senjean, ICGM, CNRS and Université de Montpellier, Montpellier

Introduction to quantum computing for chemistry, variational quantum eigensolver and quantum phase estimation algorithms (2*1h30)

VIDEO1 VIDEO2 [Slides part 1] [Slides part 2] [Handwritten derivations]

  • Thomas Ayral, ATOS, Paris

Noise in variational algorithms and classical simulation of quantum computing (2*1h30)


  • Saad Yalouz, LCQ, Université de Strasbourg, Strasbourg

Quantum algorithm developments and applications: wave-function theory and density-functional theory (1h30)

VIDEO [Slides] [Lecture notes]

  • Zachary Blunden-Codd (replacing David Herrera-Martı́), CEA, Grenoble.

Introduction to fault-tolerant quantum computing. Limits of quantum phase estimation on fault-tolerant quantum computing (1h30)
