PARTICLE TRACK RECONSTRUCTION WITH QUANTUM ALGORITHMS
Together with CERN openlab, Middle East Technical University (METU), Caltech, and Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), we are aiming for novel solutions to the particle track reconstruction problem in High Energy Physics experiments using Quantum Computing. This project won the CERN openlab Poster Prize at the CERN openlab Annual Workshop 2020
More detailed information about the project can be found here.
The necessary computation for tracking detectors of the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) experiments is to increase, due to an unprecedented increase in complexity and scale of data. Therefore, faster algorithms for particle track reconstruction are on demand.
We use Quantum Graph Neural Networks for particle track reconstruction. We aim to leverage quantum computing’s capability to evaluate a vast number of states simultaneously and thus effectively search in larger parameter space.
THE ADDED BENEFIT
Using Quantum Graph Neural Networks, we provide the first attempt to particle track reconstruction problem using gate-type Quantum Computers.

Quantum computing offers solutions to deal with very large data sets by applying nature’s
laws to programming. Games are a playful way to enthuse especially young students to tackle
tomorrow’s problems as results can be seen quickly. The game “Battleships with partial NOT
gates” teaches principles of quantum mechanics and “Nine Quantum’s Morris” – the quantum
computing version of the board game “Nine Men’s Morris” – introduces the programmer to
tensor and graph neural networks, which are used in particle physics, for example particle track
