Is a D-Wave quantum computer able to do TD-DFT calculations?

I was reading this paper (Computing molecular excited states on a D‑Wave quantum annealer) and wondering if I can make a QUBO model for the equations used in the TD-DFT energy calculation for the ...

How realistic is the use of classical analog electronic computers in solving the Schrödinger, Hartree-Fock, and Kohn-Sham equations?

Classical binary computer The classical binary computers, on which a Hartree-Fock (or density functional theory) calculation can be executed, already allows seeing a limit in their progress, mainly in ...

Is there any useful application to estimating the expectation value for an Ising model without magnetic field?

In the same line of thoughts as this post, I am trying to understand better in which cases quantum computers could be useful to simulate materials under some constraints on what the quantum computer ...

Are there interesting applications of estimating the energy for generalizations of the Heisenberg model?

I consider that $H$ is a Hamiltonian describing a quantum system of $n$ spin-1/2 particles (or qubits). I assume it can be written as (the $\alpha_k^i$ are real coefficients): $$\tag{1}H=\sum_{i=1}^3 ...

How to solve time-dependent Schrodinger equation and plot trajectory on Bloch sphere?

Let's say I have a $2 \times 2$ Hamiltonian that I am solving using the time-dependent Schrodinger equation: $$ i \frac{d}{dt} |{\Phi}\rangle=H|{\Phi}\rangle.\tag{1} $$ Consider a generic Hamiltonian $...

Molecular orbitals and active space

During the same minute as asking this question, I also asked this at Quantum Computing SE. In Qiskit, each qubit corresponds to one spin orbital. For example, the $\ce{N2}$ molecule would have 10 ...

What class of materials are closest to realizing the tunable coupling Hamiltonian?

From a physics point of view, there is an effective (approximation to second-order coupling Jaynes-Cummings) Hamiltonian of the form [1] \begin{equation} H=\sum_j\omega_j(t)\sigma_j^z+\sum_{\langle i,...
