Exciting new climate modelling using quantum computing subroutines
SDU and DMI partner in exploring applications of quantum mathematics in climate & weather models
Climate models, which use mathematical equations to simulate the physical processes of the transfer of energy and materials through the climate system, are known to be a complex and computationally intense problem. Building and running a climate model typically requires quantifying many interaction systems, modelling nonlinear effects in the earth system processes, and repeatedly solving the equations using powerful supercomputers.
In this project, QM and the SDU Climate Cluster is in collaboration with the Danish Meteorological Institute to develop new quantum mathematical climate and weather models. We intent to test the quantum subroutines on several quantum computing platforms, such as
- The state-of-the-art classical superclusters for simulating quantum computers;
- new quantum cloud services provided by hardware developers and
- actual physical installations of quantum computers run by the centre’s hardware collaborator teams.
