Quantum Computation for Quantum Field Theories and Nuclear Physics
Theoretical predictions of the properties and dynamics of quantum many-body systems of importance to nuclear physics research, from field theories to dense and/or non-equlibrium matter to systems of neutrinos, require, in many instances, beyond classical computational resources. As highlighted by Feynman and others, such systems may be amenable to quantum simulations in the future. The very first steps are now being taken towards this objective. I will discuss the potential and status of this newly emerging area of quantum simulations for nuclear physics.
