Norm Tubman (NASA, Ames), Quantum Journal Club, "State of the art classical methods for solving quantum chemistry Hamiltonians and what it means for quantum algorithms."



 A recent blind test of classical algorithms was performed on the ground state of Benzene (  In this talk I review the results of this work with a focus on the strengths and limitations of the various algorithms.  I will then discuss what this implies for quantum computing for this system and the challenges involved to go beyond classical simulations.
