Model Spectroscopy and Eigenvectors

James Whitfield lays the groundwork for quantum chemistry algorithms.

Professor James Whitfield of Darmouth College returns help us lay the groundwork for quantum chemistry algorithms. He describes these algorithms as “model spectroscopy”, finding the important frequencies and energies in the system.

Eigenvectors and eigenvalues help us define these frequencies and energies. These intrinsic states of operators characterize the operators of the system.


Darmouth大学のJames Whitfield教授は、量子化学アルゴリズムの第一人者です。 彼はこれらのアルゴリズムを”モデル分光法”として考え、重要な周波数とエネルギーを発見しました。

固有ベクトル固有値は、それらの周波数とエネルギーを定義するのに役立ちます。 オペレータの固有状態は、システムのオペレータの特徴を決定づけます。
