Classical Monte Carlo sampling has been fundamental in computational science. This talk presents the missing quantum counterpart: quantum algorithms for preparing quantum Gibbs states. This algorithm is the key to simulating low-temperature physics, which is the first anticipated application of future quantum computers.

I am Chi-Fang Chen (陳麒方), a physics Phd Student at California Institute of Technology advised by Fernando G.S.L Brandao. I work on technical theoretical problems that have a broad practical impact, such as finding quantum computational advantage. Topics include quantum dynamic bounds, random matrix theory, thermodynamics, and quantum simulation.
