A quantum algorithm that simulates the evolving state of many interacting quantum particles over time has been developed by a multi-institutional team of scientists headed by the City College of New York's Pouyan Ghaemi.

"Our quantum-computing algorithm opens a new avenue to study the properties of materials resulting from strong electron-electron interactions," said Ghaemi. "As a result, it can potentially guide the search for useful materials, such as high-temperature superconductors." Ghaemi also believes the research could enable researchers to consider using quantum computers to explore phenomena that result from the interaction of electrons in solids.
