I've successfully run the $LiH$ VQE simulation detailed in Simulating Molecules using VQE using the
statevector_simulator, however when attempting to run the same simulation on the
quantum_instance(detailed in the same section) using the
ibmq_manhattan the simulation seems to run indefinitely without yielding results.
Is it expected that the
quantum_instance simulation would be significantly longer ($>100\times$) than the
Note: I'm using the following optimizer and variational form:
optimizer = SPSA(maxiter=100) var_form = EfficientSU2(qubitOp.num_qubits, entanglement="linear")
