Simulations for quantum computing typically involve the computation of a large number of eigenvalues of large matrices. This effort focuses on optimization of these calculations using algorithms tailored to the specific characteristics of typical matrices found in these simulations. Currently, computations which heretofore required over 30 hours of simulation time have been reduced to less than 3 hours.
