New Quantum Algorithms Finally Crack Nonlinear Equations

quantamagazine.org
  • We can’t predict the weather, among many other complex issues, because computers still can’t solve nonlinear equations.
  • But this might change soon, as two different research teams created algorithms that can be used for nonlinear modelling on quantum computers.
  • Their techniques still need refining, and won’t be real-world ready for years, but these studies are another stepping stone towards truly useful quantum algorithms.
