Matrix Operations for Applications in Quantum Annealing

Type: Project

Status: running

Date: September 12, 2022 - December 1, 2022

Supervisors: Merlin Nau, Andreas Maier

Motivation:
Quantum annealing is a promising technology for quantum
computing to solve quadratic problems. D Wave makes
quantum annealers and provides an open source Python
interface: Ocean [1]. Ocean’s hybrid models do not yet
support matrix problem formulations. Current approaches are
based on SymPy [ 2]–> slow for matrix problems

Goal:

Speed up matrix operations for problem formulations
