The DFG project Scalable Numerical Methods for Adiabatic Quantum Preparation is dedicated to develop intelligent numerical methods for the time-dependent tracking of eigenvalue problems and to study the performance of adiabatic algorithms in the case of open and closed quantum systems. It is a joint project of the Research Group Modelling, Numerics, Differential Equations and the Research Group Computational Material Science at the Technical University Berlin.

Main Research Goals

  • The study of time-dependent quantum phase transitions with dissipation, especially its relation to robust and scalable adiabatic quantum state preparation.
  • The development of robust numerical methods (including adaptive error management and perturbation analysis) for the time-dependent tracing of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, especially near degeneracies, avoided crossings and higher order quantum phase transitions.
