We illustrate the application of quantum computing techniques to the investigation of the thermodynamical properties of a simple system, made up of three quantum spins with frustrated pair interactions and affected by a hard sign problem when treated within classical computational schemes. We show how quantum algorithms completely solve the problem, and discuss how this can apply to more complex systems of physical interest, with emphasis on the possible systematics and on their control.

Abstract

We illustrate the application of quantum computing techniques to the investigation of the thermodynamical properties of a simple system, made up of three quantum spins with frustrated pair interactions and affected by a hard sign problem when treated within classical computational schemes. We show how quantum algorithms completely solve the problem, and discuss how this can apply to more complex systems of physical interest, with emphasis on the possible systematics and on their control.
