Abstract: With the demise of Moore’s empirical law, we cannot expect a dramatic improvement in computer performance in the future, but the need for supercomputer in JAXA for numerical simulation and data processing etc. continues to rise. Until now, general-purpose CPUs have been exclusively used, but there is an urgent need to seriously consider the use of dedicated computers and new architectures. One candidate is a quantum computer.

In order to study the feasibility of a quantum computer as a candidate for a new architecture, the Gate-Model Quantum Computer Study Group was established with JSS3: JAXA Supercomputer System generation 3 users as the main members, which examined the possibility of applying Gate-Model Quantum Computing technology to JAXA's technical problem areas, and will assist management in making mid to long-term decisions regarding computing resources.

The Group organized use cases created in workshops and gained insight into the effects of utilizing quantum technology.
