Prof. David B. Kaplan (INT, University of Washington)


I will discuss some motivations for studying gauge theories on a quantum computer, and basic features of gauge theories in a Hamiltonian formulation. In particular, I will discuss issues regarding Gauss's law and cutoffs on the Hilbert space, both of which have to be confronted for simulations on a quantum computer.
