TITLE Event Classification with Quantum Machine Learning in High-Energy Physics
ABSTRACT

We present studies of quantum algorithms exploiting machine learning to classify events of interest from background events, one of the most representative machine learning applications in high-energy physics. We focus on variational quantum approach to learn the properties of input data and evaluate the performance of the event classification using both simulators and quantum computing devices. Comparison of the performance with standard multi-variate classification techniques based on a boosted-decision tree and a deep neural network using classical computers shows that the quantum algorithm has comparable performance with the standard techniques at the considered ranges of the number of input variables and the size of training samples. The variational quantum algorithm is tested with quantum computers, demonstrating that the discrimination of interesting events from background is feasible. Characteristic behaviors observed during a learning process using quantum circuits with extended gate structures are discussed, as well as the implications of the current performance to the application in high-energy physics experiments.
