Erez Zohar (the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) | Quantum Information and Technology Methods for Lattice Gauge Theories |


While the road to a full scale universal quantum computer is still long, in the last decades an enormous progress has been made along it. In particular, new techniques for complex many-body quantum systems based on concepts from quantum technology and information are currently available, allowing one to study non-perturbative, strongly correlated physics, using current technologies. In my talk I will focus on two such approaches – quantum simulation and tensor network states. The first suggests building non-universal quantum devices which mimic the dynamics of quantum models, and the latter to use the power of entanglement to significantly simplify the study of quantum models on classical computers. In particular, I will demonstrate how these tools can be applied for studying lattice gauge theories, aiming (in the long term) at open questions in particle physics.
