“Introduction to Quantum Computing Using Rigetti’s Quantum Virtual Machine” by Mr. Erik Gustafson, Department of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Iowa

Abstract:   I will show how to use Rigetti's Quantum Virtual Machine to manipulate quantum systems and examine the behavior of these systems. I will also show how we can use a quantum computer explicitly to use the VQE methods to minimize a variational wavefunction.
