Quantum computing of fusion plasmas

A computationally extreme challenge in fusion energy science is solving the time evolution of a smooth six dimensional distribution function describing the phase-space density of fusion plasmas. In this project we rederive and implement a recently published quantum algorithm for the Vlasov-Maxwell system of equations in Q#, a quantum computation platform.

Skills/ knowledge: It is highly desirable students have undertaken a course in quantum computing, and have proficiency in mathematics and physics.
