Title: Tensor Networks and Near-Term Quantum Devices

AbstractAs quantum devices become increasingly sophisticated, our ability to classically simulate their physics is challenged. At the same time, these quantum devices open up new possibilities for intrinsically quantum computations that may shed light on hard problems in quantum physics. However, near-term devices will be inherently noisy, and we expect that noise makes it easier to simulate a quantum system and makes the quantum system less useful for coherent computations. In this talk, I'll show how tensor networks are challenging some of these expectations, by giving new methods to reliably calculate quantum dynamics in large systems and giving suggesting new, useful computations that inherently noise resilient.
