I am working on Tensor Networks (TN) project on efficient two-dimensional algorithms and approaches to better control quantum computers, I am currently designing and demonstrating a TN algorithm for efficiently simulating systems at finite (non-zero) temperatures. We hope to efficiently and accurately study finite-temperature systems beyond the capabilities of current approaches. Such an algorithm would allow us to accurately investigate physical phenomena, such as the fractional quantum hall effect, that have proven difficult for current methods. This phase of matter has long been conjectured to support novel particles that would facilitate robust quantum computing, and our finite-temperature tensor network algorithm will hopefully move us closer to answering this and many other outstanding questions.
