Title: FermiLib v0.1

Abstract

FermiLib is an open source software package designed to facilitate the development and testing of algorithms for simulations of fermionic systems on quantum computers. Fermionic simulations represent an important application of early quantum devices with a lot of potential high value targets, such as quantum chemistry for the development of new catalysts. This software strives to provide a link between the required domain expertise in specific fermionic applications and quantum computing to enable more users to directly interface with, and develop for, these applications. It is an extensible Python library designed to interface with the high performance quantum simulator, ProjectQ, as well as application specific software such as PSI4 from the domain of quantum chemistry. Such software is key to enabling effective user facilities in quantum computation research.

  • This document describes the Serial Powering Interface (SPi) ASIC. SPi is a general purpose ASIC prototype designed for use in serial powering of silicon detector instrumentation. This description is written as a user manual to aid application, not as a design description. SPi is a generic custom ASIC, manufactured in 0.25 {mu}m CMOS by TSMC, to interface between a constant current source and silicon detector read-out chips. There is no SEU (single event upset) protection, but most (not all) components are radiation tolerant design. An operating voltage of 1.2 to 2.5 volts and other design features make the IC suitablemore » for a variety of serial powering architectures and ROICs. It should be noted that the device is likely to be a prototype for demonstration rather than a product for inclusion in a detector. The next design(s), SPin, are likely to be designed for a specific application (eg SLHC). The component includes: (1) Seven bi-directional LVDS-like buffers for high data rate links to/from the read-out chips. These are AC coupled (series capacitor) off-chip for DC level conversion; (2) A programmable internal programmable shunt regulator to provide a defined voltage to readout chips when linked in a serial powering chain; (3) A programmable internal shunt regulator control circuit for external transistor control; (4) Shunt current measurement (for internal shunt regulator); (5) A programmable internal shunt regulator current alarm; and (6) Two programmable linear regulators.« less
  • The purpose of the program INVICE is to extract information about the mechanical compression isentrope of a material by analysis of experimental velocity profile data. The software is used to analyze raw data from high-pressure isentropic compression experiments performed at various drive facilities (primarily the Z Machine at Sandia National Laboratories) as part of DOE’s Stockpile Stewardship Program or other programs studying condensed matter at high pressures. The program uses a two-step Lax-Wendroff finitedifferencing scheme to integrate the one-dimensional (planar) equations of motion backward in the Lagrangian spatial coordinate, and a downhill simplex method with optional simulated annealing to performmore » minimization for extracting an isentrope.« less
  • This software can be used to develop and test Model Predictive Control (MPC) algorithms with simulated buildings or deploy MPC in real buildings. This includes the gathering of exogenous data, training of simplified models, and control optimization.
  • IBCheck is a utility that can help data center, especially large High Performance Supercomputing centers to manage and troubleshoot Infiniband related issues.
  • The BSEPACK contains a set of subroutines for solving the Bethe-Salpeter Eigenvalue (BSE) problem. This type of problem arises in this study of optical excitation of nanoscale materials. The BSE problem is a structured non-Hermitian eigenvalue problem. The BSEPACK software can be used to compute all or subset of eigenpairs of a BSE Hamiltonian. It can also be used to compute the optical absorption spectrum without computing BSE eigenvalues and eigenvectors explicitly. The package makes use of the ScaLAPACK, LAPACK and BLAS.
