Koji Terashi (CERN) ” Quantum Computing and Possible Application to High-Energy Physics”

October 31, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


High-energy frontier in particle physics is going to enter into an era of precision studies after Run 3 at the LHC, with the increase of proton luminosity and upgraded detectors. This will pose a significant challenge to the event reconstruction and data analysis, where one has to look for (tiny) hints of new physics in a huge amount of collected data. Over the last few years quantum computing, in particular the hardware systems with superconducting qubits, has grown significantly, making a quantum computer with order of 50-100 qubits, called NISQ device, nearly in hand. This motivates an exploration of this new technology in high energy physics (HEP) experiments, aiming to identify interesting application of quantum algorithms to data analysis. In this talk, I will discuss about possible HEP applications of quantum computing and current status of those studies.
