Quantum Computing for Complex Chemical Systems

I will give a brief overview of the recent advances in quantum information and computation for chemistry.  Then present the challenging problems in quantum computing for complex chemical systems focusing on electronic structure calculations and open quantum dynamics. I will present three related approaches to electronic structure calculations: The quantum circuit model, the adiabatic quantum computing model and the quantum machine learning approach.  Then I will present our recent developed quantum algorithm for evolving open quantum dynamics on quantum computing devices. Finally, I will discuss the opportunities, open questions and challenges in the field of quantum computing for quantum chemistry.
