Welcome to the Institute for Quantum-Inspired and Quantum Optimization at the Hamburg University of Technology

The Institute for Quantum-Inspired and Quantum Optimization was established on 11/1/2022 and will be expanded in the coming months.


Our work focuses on fundamental research necessary for the practical applicability of quantum computers

  • Quantum system characterization,
    e.g. quantum tomography, randomized benchmarking, shadow estimation
  • (Hybrid) quantum computing
  • Combinatorial optimization
  • Compiling of quantum operations
  • Quantum error correction
  • Machine learning with quantum data
  • Classical simulation of complex quantum systems
  • Methods: applied math, computational complexity, compressed sensing, convex and non-convex optimization, manifold optimization, representation theory, random matrix theory, tensor networks
