In this talk, I will give an overview of the variational quantum eigensolver algorithm (VQE), a promising algorithm for simulating chemicals and materials in near-term quantum computers. The field is advancing rapidly due to many algorithm developers around the world. I will discuss recent developments from my research group for reducing the cost and increasing the accuracy of VQE calculations. I will also discuss the Tequila quantum algorithms development package, which allows for the rapid exploration and prototyping of variational quantum algorithms.
