The talk will cover one of the most prominent and promising fields of QC applications - Quantum Chemistry. The possible approaches will be described with their pros and cons, focusing mostly on Variational Quantum Eigensolvers - the class of hybrid quantum-classical chemical solvers, able to run efficiently also on NISQ infrastructures. The latter part of the talk will be devoted to the description of different types of noise present in our computations and ways to deal with them. In every section, there will be a hands-on exercise based on the Qiskit toolkit.

Benefits for the attendees, what they will learn:

Participants will learn about the current state of Quantum Computing infrastructures and the Quantum Chemistry approaches that could benefit from their usage. Aside from that, the main problems of current Quantum Computing will be presented, and participants will obtain an overview of different ways of compensating for them. Most importantly, participants will get a hands-on experience with the Qiskit toolkit by IBM, implementing simple examples illustrating the presented concepts.






Basics knowledge of Python programming.

Basic knowledge of linear algebra.
