Abstract: Current quantum computers typically have a few tens of qubits and are prone to errors due to imperfect gate implementations or undesired coupling with the environment.
Among many of the proposed near-term applications to try to surpass these inconveniences, the field of Variational Quantum Algorithms (VQAs)
is held as one of the most promising approaches. Thus, it seems natural to explore the use of VQAs for different applications, which is precisely what we do in this PhD thesis.
