P3155 - Programmable Quantum Simulator Working Group

Title: Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator

Scope: This standard defines programming methods of quantum simulators according to analog (i.e., target Hamiltonian), digital (i.e., non-native Hamiltonian evolution) and hybrid (i.e., quantum-quantum or quantum-classical architectures) devices for the simulation of quantum phenomena beyond classical computing applications. This standard includes algorithms to represent the nano-scale properties of quantum simulation devices, and excludes any proposal for the architecture of quantum simulators.
