This talk will survey the landscape of applications for small fault-tolerant quantum computers. First, we will discuss barriers to achieving quantum advantage with algorithms delivering only a quadratic speedup (arXiv:2011.04149), and the implications of this for popular applications such as Monte Carlo based pricing of financial derivatives and combinatorial optimization (arXiv:2007.07391). Then, we will discuss areas where larger speedups seem possible, including the solving of linear systems and differential equations, and quantum simulation. We will discuss several of our team’s recent papers on quantum simulating chemistry including arXiv:2011.03494 and arXiv:2105.12767.
