Custom fermionic codes for quantum simulation

Image of Picture1_5

We present a fully customizable construction for designing quantum codes for systems of fermions on a quantum computer.

The required number of qubits and the gate counts determine the feasibility of a quantum simulation experiment. The construction presented lets one realize a trade-off between these two resources and in some cases lower both costs simultaneously. This work significantly advances our knowledge of how to encode physical systems on quantum computers.
