Why Pauli Exclusion Principle Applies to Bosons: A Deep Dive into the Future Quantum Computing &Hardware from A Chemical Physics Perspective
A broad understanding of the full definition of the Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP) will be discussed and an explanation of how it applies to both fermions and bosons is key to unlocking the promised potential of quantum computing applied to quantum chemistry. The symmetry requirements on the total wave function for fermionic and bosonic states will be explored in great detail and then simplified to demonstrate the current state of quantum computing and the assumed hardware. The factorial (exponential) dependence of PEP will be emphasized to explain how the scientific community has traditionally overcome this complexity in classical computing. PEP incorporating the Born-Oppenheimer approximation will be highlighted and a discussion of how it is being exploited in quantum computing will be provided. Examples will be shown for small atoms and molecules and a discussion of the potential future of quantum chemistry and computing will be the focus of the presentation.
Dr. Keeper L. Sharkey is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ODE, L3C (ODE) and is emphasizing quantum services as a social benefit focusing on quantum education, ethics, and sustainability. Her current project is promoting the Quantum Logical Electrons and Nuclei (QLEAN™) algorithm, a quantum virtualization methodology that specifically overcomes the limitations of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation and alleviates the factorial dependence of quantum chemistry computations without losing important quantum information. ODE has applied for a U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for Quantum Information Technology simulations subcategory. She is currently writing a book on Quantum Chemistry related to Quantum Computing for beginners with Alain Chancé, a Qiskit Advocate, as a co-author. Keeper obtained her PhD in Chemical Physics from the University of Arizona in May of 2015 and remains a Designated Scientific Research Campus Colleague. SHer postdoctoral faculty appointment at Washington State University in 2016/17 was focused on deriving algorithms for learning the physical properties of the theoretical material, metallic hydrogen. She has also spent time machine learning sequential marketing programs in the insurance and FinTech sector. She was appointed Chair of Quantum Applied Chemistry in September of 2019 at Quantum Security Alliance, of which ODE is a knowledge partner. She has participated in Quantum Business Europe (March 2021) as the moderator of End User applications (Chemistry and Pharma) where she led the discussions with Merck, Heisenberg Quantum Simulations (HQS), IBM, BASF, Qu&Co, Alpine Quantum Technologies (AQT), Alice & Bob, Fact Based Insight, Oxford Instruments, and Air Liquide. She has participated in QuantumTech Congress twice; once as speaker of a Lunch & Learn (September 2019) titled “Non-Born Oppenheimer Algorithms for Quantum Chemistry & Computing” describing qubits/qudits potential computational variability and flexibility, and the other as a panelist of Quantum Ethics and as a speaker of the Start-up & Investor Showcase “Highly accurate Quantum simulations for sustainability” (June 2020)
