Chemistry specific Aqua algorithms (qiskit.chemistry.algorithms
)¶
These are chemistry specific algorithms for Aqua. As they rely on chemistry specific knowledge and/or function they are here in chemistry rather than in Aqua.
Chemistry Algorithms¶
These are algorithms configured and/or functioning using chemistry specific knowledge. See also
the Aqua algorithms
for other algorithms in these categories which may also
be used for chemistry problems such as VQE
.

Potential Energy Surface Samplers¶
Algorithms that can compute potential energy surfaces.
Class to evaluate the BornOppenheimer Potential Energy Surface (BOPES). 
The samplers include extrapolators to facilitate convergence across a set of points and support of various potentials. More detail may be found in the submodule linked below
