Accurate and decoherence-protected adiabatic quantum computation Daniel Lidar, USC Workshop on Quantum Algorithms, Computational Models, and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics Vancouver, July 23, 2010 PRL 100, 160506 (2008) JMP 50, 102106 (2009) $: Motivation Protect Adiabatic Quantum Computation (AQC) against decoherence and control errors Find rigorous bounds on delity of AQC in presence of coupling to environment Main result of this talk: Theorem: AQC can be performed with a delity approaching 1 as a power law in the system size, using only 2-local Hamiltonians, in the presence of 1-local noise, assuming access to (dynamical decoupling) pulses whose width and intervals shrink as a power law in the system size.

Lett. 100, 160506 (2008) In other words: You can get arbitrarily accurate open-system AQC for the following price: Design your adiabatic evolution Hamiltonian (2-local) so that it is analytic and has N zero derivatives at the initial and nal times. Apply dynamical decoupling pulses generated by global magnetic elds in the x and z directions. The shorter the pulses and pulse intervals, the higher the delity. This result doesnt depend on bath temperature. To ensure that adiabatic evolution and dynamical decoupling are compat- ible, encode into a simple (distance-2) quantum error detection code. 1 2 j+1 n x xσ σ⊗ jX z zσ σ⊗ jZ 1 ni+1 j+1 x xσ σ⊗ i jX X z zσ σ⊗ i jZ Z Scheme for dynamical-decoupling-protected universal adiabatic QC switch interactions adiabatically, locally 1 2 j+1 n x xσ σ⊗ jX z zσ σ⊗ jZ 1 ni+1 j+1 x xσ σ⊗ i jX X z zσ σ⊗ i jZ Z zB zB zBzB xB xB xB Scheme for dynamical-decoupling-protected universal adiabatic QC switch fields rapidly but globally Proof Strategy (and talk outline) Let S distance between desired ground state and actual system state, at nal time T Lemma 1: the distance inequality : S decoherence distance adiabatic distance due to open system + due to closed system non-unitary evolution| {z } dD deviations from adiabaticity| {z } ad and show that both these distances can be made arbitrarily small.

For e¢ cient AQC algorithms: (n) 0nz; z = dynamical critical exponent Unfortunately this criterion is not quite right... Adiabatic Distance for Closed Systems Depending on the di¤erentiability of Had one can prove di¤erent versions of the adiabatic theorem (Lemma 2). Jansen, Ruskai, & Seiler [J. Math. Phys. 48, 102111 (2007)]. Assume: the ground state manifold of Had is gapped. Had() is twice di¤erentiable on [0; 1] _Had(0) = _Had(1) = 0 Then (norm is operator norm): T rk _Hadk2 3 =) ad < r2 DAL, A. Rezakhani, A, Hamma, JMP 50, 102106 (2009): Assume Had(τ): F has a non-degenerate and gapped ground state F is analytic in a strip of width γ around [0,1] F its first N derivatives vanish at τ = 0, 1 Let r > 1. Then T = r N k _Hadk2 3 =) ad < (N + 1) +1rN =) Closed-system AQC is resilient against control errors which preserve gap but causeHad(s) to deviate from its intended path, as long as nal Hamiltonian is correct. This is a form of inherent fault tolerance to control errors not shared by the circuit model! How to accomplish this? Design Hamiltonian according to criteria above.

Goal: Simultaneously minimize dD using dynamical decoupling. This is an optimization problem: generically decoherence worsens with increas- ing T , while closed-system adiabaticity improves. Dynamical Decoupling (DD) = a sequence of pulses applied to the system, sometimes forming a group G, designed to reduce the e¤ective system-bath coupling. Implemented via HC(t).

In conclusion weve (almost) proven the Theorem: AQC can be performed with a delity approaching 1 as a power law in the system size, [using only 2-local Hamiltonians, in the presence of 1-local noise], assuming access to (dynamical decoupling) pulses whose width and intervals shrink as a power law in the system size. The latter power law exponent is linear in the dynamical critical exponent of the closed system. Part 3: Seamlessly Combining AQC & DD Need to show how to achieve non-interference condition [Had(t); HC(t 0)] = 0 8t; t0: Can be done using encoding. Example Stabilizer-normalizer construction: DD pulses are stabilizer elements. AQC implemented via normalizer elements. 2-Local Universal AQC Resistant Against 1-local Noise A 2-local Hamiltonian that is universal for AQC (J.D. Biamonte and P.J.

G is the stabilizer of an [[n; n 2; 2]] stabilizer code C (n even, x =even weight binary string): C = fj xi = (jxi+ jnotxi) = p 2g E.g. n = 4: j00iL = (j0000i+ j1111i) = p 2; j10iL = (j0011i+ j1100i) = p 2 j01iL = (j0101i+ j1010i) = p 2; j11iL = (j1001i+ j0110i) = p 2 Encoded single-qubit generators for C = fj xi = (jxi+ jnotxi) = p 2g: Xj = x 1 x j+1 Zj = z j+1 z n Encoded two-qubit generators: Xi Xj = x i+1 x j+1 Zi Zj = z i+1 z j+1 Thus universal AQC can be combined with DD using only 2-local xi x j and zi z j interactions over C. 1 2 j+1 n x xσ σ⊗ jX z zσ σ⊗ jZ Universality for the [[n,n-2,2]] code 1 ni+1 j+1 x xσ σ⊗ i jX X z zσ σ⊗ i jZ Z zB zB zBzB xB xB xB Physical examples where X, Z (as pulses for DD) and xi x j ; z i z j (as Hamil- tonians for AQC) are available and controllable: Capacitively coupled ux qubits (D.V.

Odds and Ends Energy gap stabilization Jordan, Farhi & Shor (PRA 74, 052322 (2006)) introduced a scheme that can protect AQC against 1-local noise using a energy gap against local excitations. Such gaps can be engineered into the Hamiltonians using error detecting codes However, the resulting universal Hamiltonians are at least 4-local Their scheme is fully compatible with the DD scheme presented here Control Error ● Suppose final Hamiltonian is slightly off: ● Resulting ground state is: ● Gap against local operators ensures denominator Why not Use Standard Quantum Error Correction? Not known how to embed fault-tolerant QEC into adiabatic evolution: Requires feedback, which may break adiabaticity (A. Allahverdyan & G. Mahler, arXiv:0804.1643) Embedded FT-QEC circuit will face di¤erent error model than what it was designed for We used dynamical decoupling (open-loop, feedback-free) to deal with coupling to environment, and showed it can deal with the relevant error model. And, we used an analytic interpolation to boost delity of closed-system adia- batic evolution. Is AQC Better than Other QC Paradigms? No: Computationally equivalent to circuit model (Aharonov et al., :quant-ph/0405098; A. Mizel, DAL, M.

Description | In the closed system setting I will show how to obtain extremely accurate adiabatic QC by proper choice of the interpolation between the initial and final Hamiltonians. Namely, given an analytic interpolation whose first N initial and final time derivatives vanish, the error can be made to be smaller than 1/N^N, with an evolution time which scales as N and the square of the norm of the time-derivative of the Hamiltonian, divided by the cube of the gap (joint work with Ali Rezakhani and Alioscia Hamma). In the open system setting I will describe a method for protecting adiabatic QC by use of a hybrid encoding-dynamical decoupling scheme. This strategy can be used to protect spin-based universal adiabatic QC against arbitrary 1-local noise using only global magnetic fields. By combining error bounds for the closed and open system settings, I will show that in principle the method is scalable to arbitrarily large computations. |
