Abstract

The study of quantum generative models is well-motivated, not only because of its importance in quantum machine learning and quantum chemistry but also because of the perspective of its implementation on near-term quantum machines. Inspired by previous studies on the adversarial training of classical and quantum generative models, we propose the first design of quantum Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Networks (WGANs), which has been shown to improve the robustness and the scalability of the adversarial training of quantum generative models even on noisy quantum hardware. Specifically, we propose a definition of the Wasserstein semimetric between quantum data, which inherits a few key theoretical merits of its classical counterpart. We also demonstrate how to turn the quantum Wasserstein semimetric into a concrete design of quantum WGANs that can be efficiently implemented on quantum machines. Our numerical study, via classical simulation of quantum systems, shows the more robust and scalable numerical performance of our quantum WGANs over other quantum GAN proposals. As a surprising application, our quantum WGAN has been used to generate a 3-qubit quantum circuit of ~50 gates that well approximates a 3-qubit 1-d Hamiltonian simulation circuit that requires over 10k gates using standard techniques.

Learning and Inference on Generative Adversarial Quantum Circuits
Quantum mechanics is inherently probabilistic in light of Born's rule. However, quantum circuits can be more challenging compared to classical networks due to lack of efficient differentiable learning algorithm. We devise an adversarial quantum-classical hybrid training scheme.

Quantum State Tomography with Conditional Generative Adversarial Networks
Quantum state tomography (QST) is a challenging task in intermediate-scale quantum devices. We apply conditional generative adversarial networks (CGANs) to QST. We demonstrate that our QST-CGAN reconstructs optical quantum states with high fidelity orders of

Quantum Earth Mover's Distance: A New Approach to Learning Quantum Data
Quantum earth mover's (EM) or Wasserstein-1distance is recently proposed as a quantum equivalent to classical EM distance. We show that the quantum EM distance possesses unique properties, not found in other commonly used quantum distance metrics, that make quantum learning more stable and efficient.
