Digital-analog quantum simulation of quantum chemistry (DAQS)

M.-H. Yung, J. Casanova, A. Mezzacapo, J. McClean, L. Lamata, A. Aspuru-Guzik, and E. Solano, “From transistor to trapped-ion computers for quantum chemistry”, Sci. Rep. 4, 3589 (2014).

This is the pioneering paper where celebrated VQE algorithm was applied to quantum chemistry models in trapped ions. These ideas were taken by top experimental groups in trapped ions (IQOQI, Innsbruck, Austria) and superconducting circuits (Google, Santa Barbara, US), and implemented in the lab.
