New quantum algorithms for the simulation of physical systems

The simulation of physical phenomena is one of the main applications of computation. In this key area quantum computers are expected to become useful long before they will become capable to solve large-scale problems such as integer factorisation. The EDIQIP project developed new efficient quantum algorithms for the simulation of complex classical and quantum dynamics, including phenomena such as dynamical localization, Anderson metal-insulator transitions, strange attractors in classical dissipative systems and information spreading in small-world systems. NMR(Nuclear Magnetic Resonance)-based quantum computation of dynamical localization has been recently implemented by the group of D.Cory at MIT.
