Efficient thermalization and universal quantum computing with quantum Gibbs samplers

In this paper, the authors prove that a recently introduced, efficiently implementable dissipative evolution thermalizes to the Gibbs state in time scaling polynomially with system size at high enough temperatures, and for any Hamiltonian that satisfies a Lieb-Robinson bound, such as local Hamiltonians on a lattice.

Equivariant quantum circuits for learning on weighted graphs

In this work, we introduce an ansatz for learning tasks on weighted graphs that respects an important graph symmetry, namely equivariance under node permutations.

Noise-induced shallow circuits and absence of barren plateaus

In this paper, the authors study the impact of uncorrected noise on quantum circuits, starting by showing that any noise `truncates' most quantum circuits to effectively logarithmic depth, in the task of computing Pauli expectation values.
