Title: Quantum Computing and Fundamental Physics
Abstract: This talk has three parts. In part 1, I discuss the current status and near-term prospects for quantum computing and quantum simulation. In part 2, I emphasize the opportunity to advance our understanding of quantum field theory, high energy physics, and nuclear physics using quantum simulation platforms. In part 3, I describe some recent and ongoing work developing classical and quantum algorithms for simulating high-energy scattering in quantum field theory, particularly in one spatial dimension.

The QuantHEP Seminar is an initiative of the research project QuantHEP – Quantum Computing Solutions for High-Energy Physics aiming at:
- presenting and discussing ideas and results on how Quantum Computing – and Quantum Technologies (QT) in general – can help address scientific challenges in High-Energy Physics (HEP), and how in turn HEP can bring new insights into Quantum Information Science;
- bringing the QT and HEP communities closer together and foster their scientific collaboration.
The following sessions will be:
- 4 November 2020, Sau Lan Wu (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Application of Quantum Machine Learning to High Energy Physics Analysis at LHC using Quantum Computer Simulators and Quantum Computer Hardware.
- 2 December 2020, Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics), Solving quantum lattice gauge theories with quantum computers.
