Title: Higher-order methods for simulations on quantum computers

Abstract

To implement many-qubit gates for use in quantum simulations on quantum computers efficiently, we develop and present methods reexpressing exp[[minus]i(H[sub 1]+H[sub 2]+[center dot][center dot][center dot])[Delta]t] as a product of factors exp[[minus]iH[sub 1][Delta]t], exp[[minus]iH[sub 2][Delta]t],[hor ellipsis], which is accurate to third or fourth order in [Delta]t. The methods we derive are an extended form of the symplectic method, and can also be used for an integration of classical Hamiltonians on classical computers. We derive both integral and irrational methods, and find the most efficient methods in both cases. [copyright] [ital 1999] [ital The American Physical Society]
