Goals

The QuantHEP Seminar aims:

  • to present and discuss 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;
  • to bring the QT and HEP communities closer together and foster their scientific collaboration.

The QuantHEP Seminar is an initiative of the research project QuantHEP – Quantum Computing Solutions for High-Energy Physics.

The acronym QuantHEP comes from the merging of the names of the sections of the arXiv used by the QT and HEP communities, respectively: Quantum Physics (quant-ph), and High-Energy Physics (hep-ex, hep-lat, hep-ph, hep-th).
 

Schedule & Venue

The QuantHEP Seminar takes places online in the first Wednesday of every month, at 17h00 Central European Time (in the corresponding Summer or Winter time, depending on the season).

The QuantHEP Seminar is streamed live on the QuantHEP Seminar YouTube channel. The video recording of the seminar and the corresponding slides will be made available on the QuantHEP Seminar website.

Duration

Each session of the QuantHEP Seminar is composed of a 45 minutes presentation, followed by a slot of 10 minutes for questions.

Day 2
06 Oct 2021

From tensor networks to quantum computations of lattice field theories

We will explore U(1) lattice gauge theories with topological terms in D=1,2 and 3 spatial dimensions. For D=1, we scrutinize mass perturbation theory at small positive and negative fermion masses,...
