Title: Quantum simulation of quantum chemistry
Quantum chemistry has been regarded as the "killer application" of quantum computation by commerical companies who made significant investments in making quantum computers. In this talk, we will go through the basic ideas on how quantum chemistry can be simulated with a quantum computer. We will review several theoretical and experimental progresses achieved so far, without assuming a background in quantum chemistry for the audience.
