Abstract:
This licentiate thesis is an extended introduction to the accompanying papers, which encompass a study of the quantum approximate optimization algorithm (QAOA). It is a hybrid quantum-classical algorithm for solving combinatorial optimization problems and is a promising algorithm to run on near term quantum devices. In this thesis, we will introduce the workings of the QAOA, together with some applications of it on combinatorial optimization problems.
