Lecture title: Numerical Simulations for Materials by Using Quantum Computer

Next-generation accelerators including quantum computers are steadily developing. In particular, quantum annealing machines can search for the minimum value of the objective function at high speed. They are often applied to combinational optimization problems involving the objective functions of the target. If the objective function can be replaced with energy expressing the target phenomenon, quantum acceleration of finding of equilibrium state acquisition can be expected by a physics simulation. In this presentation, the research examples of the microstructure search of polymer alloy and the structure optimization of truss by quantum annealing are introduced.
