Hardware Adapted Theory (HAT)

The Hardware Adapted Theory (HAT) consortium provides theory support for the experimental groups within MQV. This includes the numerical modeling of hardware to help in the development of novel hardware generations. The performance of a given hardware generation can be optimized by

  • optimal-control and machine-learning approaches to design quantum gates,
  • the tight integration of hard- and software development in co-design,
  • quantum error correction,
  • quantum algorithms,
  • the characterization, benchmarking, verification and validation of
    • gate operations,
    • quantum circuit building blocks,
    • experimentally implemented quantum algorithms.

Furthermore, the HAT consortium will help to explore suitable applications of each generation of quantum-computing hardware.
