Garden Optimization Problems: A practical introduction to programming quantum annealers

The PGI Science Office has begun a new series of seminars: the "Jülich Quantum Computing Seminar" will take place every fortnight on Tuesdays at 15:00 via video conference and is intended to promote cooperation between the working groups conducting research in the field of quantum computing and quantum information at various institutes at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Here is the access data for all the seminars:

In this talk we will give a gentle introduction to programming quantum annealers manufactured by D-Wave Systems Inc. The usage of quantum annealers is illustrated using a class of problems developed within our group: the garden optimization problems.

This talk is intended to be a step by step practical guide from conceiving a suitable problem for a quantum annealer, to understanding how to map the problem onto the device and tuning relevant parameters, to analyzing the results.

New feature:

We are adding a new feature to our seminar series! For those of you who would like to get to know each other a little better after the regular seminar ends, you can use the following link to meet up informally in a virtual space on the "wonder" ( ) platform to enjoy an online gathering that should prove both interesting and fun:
