Quantum computing (QC) is an emerging technology that has the potential to radically change the way we will be solving computational problems in the future. While today's Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) computers have severe limitations, full-fledged QC systems that surpass the computational capabilities of classical computers are expected within this decade.

In this talk, I will give an overview of quantum algorithms and quantum-assisted computational methods for PDEs. Starting with the well-known HHL algorithm [1] and its various variants, we will discuss the fine-prints of its application to systems that arise from the discretization of PDEs with classical numerical methods. The second part of the talk will focus on hybrid classical-quantum algorithms, in particular, the variational quantum linear solver proposed by Bravo-Prieto et al. [2]. The third part of the talk will give a brief overview of unconventional approaches such as [3].
