This paper is the Abrahms-Lloyd algorithm which is at the heart of most quantum simulations algorithms Being able to implement this would massively speed up molecular modeling for the development of molecular manufacturing.
Geordie Rose, CTO of Dwave indicates, In contrast to factoring, quantum simulation is both extremely commercially valuable (a large fraction of the world’s supercomputer cycles are currently spent solving the Schrodinger equation) and offers the possibility for huge social good (new clean energy sources, better medecines, cleaner chemical plants, etc.).
