DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Guillaume Verdon (Institute for Quantum Computing)\n
In recent months\, the field of Quantum Machine Learning (QML) has had\nnu
merous advances and a rapid growth of interest from academia and\nindustry
alike. Recent works have focused on a particular class of QML\nalgorithms
\, the so-called quantum variational algorithms (often called\nquantum neu
ral networks)\, where an optimization over a set of\nparametrized quantum
circuit ansatze is performed in order to learn\ncertain quantum states or
quantum transformations. The explicit\nconnection between these quantum pa
rametric circuits and neural\nnetworks from classical deep learning had so
far remained elusive. In\nthis talk\, we will establish how to port over
classical neural\nnetworks as quantum parametric circuits\, and we will fu
rther introduce\na quantum-native backpropagation principle which can be l
everaged to\ntrain any quantum parametric network. We will present two mai
n quantum\noptimizers leveraging this quantum backpropagation principle: Q
uantum\nDynamical Descent (QDD)\, which uses quantum-coherent dynamics to\
noptimize network parameters\, and Momentum Measurement Gradient Descent\n
(MoMGrad)\, which is a quantum-classical analogue of QDD. We will\nbriefly
cover multiple applications of QDD/MoMGrad to various problems\nof quantu
m information learning\, and how to use these optimizers to\ntrain classic
al neural networks in a quantum fashion. Furthermore\, we\nwill show how t
o efficiently train hybrid networks comprised of\nclassical neural network
s and quantum parametric circuits\, running on\nclassical and quantum proc
essing units\, respectively.\n\nTalk based on [\\arXiv{1806.09729}].\n\nht

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Stephen Jordan (NIST / University of Maryland)\nIn t
his talk I will describe quantum algorithms by which universal fault-toler
ant quantum computers can simulate quantum and classical field theories. I
n the case of quantum field theories the number of quantum degrees of free
dom is extensive in the volume of the system to be simulated and the speed
up over classical algorithms is exponential. As specific applications we c
onsider phi-fourth theory and the Gross-Neveu model. For classical field t
heories the number of qubits needed for the simulation scales only logarit
hmically with the volume. The resulting speedup is polynomial for classica
l field theories in any fixed number of spatial dimensions but exponential
in the number of dimensions. As a specific application we consider wave e
quations in three spatial dimensions (such as Maxwell's equations and the
Klein-Gordon equation). In this case the quantum algorithm achieves a cubi
c speedup while using only logarithmically many qubits\, vs. standard clas
sical methods which have memory requirements that grow linearly with volum
e. I will conclude with some research directions and open questions regard
ing quantum algorithms for scientific computing.\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.go

coherent manipulations together with nearly perfect detection guarantee a

to run quantum algorithms [1] or engineer Hamiltonians to emulate physical
systems of interest [2]. Recently trapped ions have been employed for pro
of of principle demonstrations of quantum simulation of high energy physic
s\, including the Dirac equation [3] and the 1+1D Schwinger model [4]. In
this talk I will describe the main features of the trapped-ion quantum har

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jesse Stryker (University of Washington)\nMotivated
by the limited capabilities of near-term quantum computers\,\nwe reconside
r the Hamiltonian formulation of lattice gauge theories\nand the method of
truncating Hilbert space to render it\nfinite-dimensional. Conventional f
ormulations lead to a Hilbert space\nlargely spanned by unphysical states\
; given the current inability to\nperform fault-tolerant large scale quant
um computations\, we examine\nhere how one might restrict wave function ev
olution entirely or mostly\nto the physical subspace. We consider such con
structions for the\nsimplest of these theories containing dynamical gauge
bosons — $U(1)$\nlattice gauge theory without matter in d = 2\, 3 spatia
l dimensions —\nand find that electric-magnetic duality naturally plays
an important\nrole. We conclude that this approach is likely to significan
tly reduce\ncomputational overhead in d = 2 by a reduction of variables. W
e\nfurther investigate potential advantages of regulating magnetic\nfluctu
ations in asymptotically-free theories\, instead of electric\nfluctuations
\, which have been the focus of previous truncation\nproposals.\n\nhttps:/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Erez Zohar (Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics)\
nQuantum simulation and tensor networks are two many-body physics\napproac
hes rooted in quantum information science\, which have been\nwidely used r
ecently\, especially in condensed matter contexts\, proving\nto be very us
eful. The first suggests to use controllable quantum\nsystems as simulator
s of others\, which might be otherwise inaccessible\nor hard to solve\; th
e latter allows one to efficiently construct and\nstudy (analytically and
numerically) physically relevant many body\nstates with arbitrary symmetri
es. More recently\, these methods have\nbeen generalized and applied to hi
gh energy physics problems as well\,\nand in particular to gauge theories.
In my talk I will discuss the\napplication of those methods for the stud
y of lattice gauge theories\,\nfocusing on the work carried out at the the
ory group at MPQ: first\,\nquantum simulation of lattice gauge theories wi
th ultracold atoms in\noptical lattices -- suggesting to observe non-pertu
rbative elementary\nparticle physics in atomic simulators\; and finally\,
gauged fermionic\nPEPS -- a particular tensor network construction of gaug
e invariant\nstates\, involving dynamical gauge fields and fermionic matte
r\,\nallowing one to use the efficient tensor network toolbox for the stud
y\nof gauge theories\, and extend it\, thanks to the presence of gauge\nfi
elds\, to numerical studies in $(2+1)$-d and more.\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.

y spread is often difficult to calculate outside of free\,\nperturbative o
r holographic regimes. We propose an operator algebra\napproach to the pro
blem. The close connection between Rényi entropies\nand non-commutative m
easures has yielded strong results in the channel\nsetting. We apply simil
ar ideas to the setting of many-body quantum\nquenches\, including in the
SYK model. We discuss connections to chaos\nand rates of scrambling. For p

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Isaac Kim (Stanford University)\nI will argue that e
ven a medium-scale (50 to \\ensuremath{\\sim}100 qubits) quantum computer\
ncan significantly speed up the existing tensor network\ncalculations. Thi
s is because the classical tensor network contraction\nalgorithms have hit
a plateau\, and because the contraction time on a\nquantum computer scale
s much favorably compared to the classical\nmethods. What makes this propo
sal realistic is the fact that the\nmethod is noise-resilient. Under the s
tandard noise model\, the effect\nof noise on low-point correlation functi
ons remains controlled even in\nthe large system limit. I expect this meth
od to primarily help\nunderstand challenging quantum many-body systems\, b
ut we will also\nmuse on other speculative possibilities (\\emph{e.g.}\, m
achine learning) as\nwell.\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.gov/event/17199/contribu

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Judah Unmuth-Yockey (Syracuse University)\nI will di
scuss our proposal to quantum simulate the Abelian Higgs\nmodel in $1+1$ d
imensions. While doing this I will show how the\nenergy gap associated wi
th the inclusion of a static charge shows\nuniversal finite-size scaling i
n the discrete lattice model\, and the\ncontinuous-time quantum model. Th
is finite-size scaling is identical\nin both limits. I will briefly go in
to progress being made in $2+1$\ndimensions on the $U(1)$-gauge model.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Stefan Kuehn (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Ph
ysics)\nIn recent years variational approaches based on efficient ansatzes
for\nthe wave function of a quantum many-body system have proven their\np
ower for addressing the Hamiltonian lattice formulation of gauge\ntheories
. For one\, methods based on Matrix Product States\, a\nparticular kind of
one-dimensional Tensor Network\, have been\nsuccessfully applied to vario
us Abelian and non-Abelian lattice gauge\nmodels in $1+1$ dimension. Latel
y\, we developed a variational ansatz\nbased on Gaussian States for $(1+1)
$-dimensional lattice gauge\ntheories. These techniques do not suffer from
the sign problem and\nallow for addressing problems which cannot be tackl
ed with\nconventional Monte Carlo methods\, such as out-of-equilibrium dyn
amics\nor the presence of a chemical potential.\n\nIn this talk I will pre
sent some results demonstrating the\ncapabilities of these techniques usin
g the Schwinger model and a\n$(1+1)$-dimensional SU(2) lattice gauge theor
y as a test bench. In\nparticular\, I will show that we can reliably simul
ate the static\naspects as well as the real-time dynamics of string breaki
ng in these\nmodels\, and that these methods might be helpful for explorin
g\nquestions relevant for an implementation in (analog) quantum\nsimulator
s.\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.gov/event/17199/contributions/42077/

ning (UV-completing) lattice Yang-Mills theory in the\nHamiltonian formali
sm. Central to this approach are local maps that\nperform curvature interp
olation in the gauge-group\, which together\nform the building blocks of a
gauge-invariant MERA tensor network. (2)\nA way of assigning geometric co
ntent to pieces of certain well-known\ntensor networks for critical system
s\, via their mimicry of pieces of\neuclidean time path integral (of a con
formal field theory).\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.gov/event/17199/contributions

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Nick Rubin (Rigetti)\nIn\n this talk we introduce a
lower bound simulation method based on variational determination of the qu
antum marginal distribution\, and how the geometric constraints associated
with enforcing feasibility in the variational procedure can be employed t
o certify\n physicality in a marginal tomography routine. The feasibility
constraints we employ are derived from 'outer' approximations to the n-rep
resentability problem which provide a hierarchy of semidefinite programs t
hat are relaxations of the ground state energy\n problem. We demonstrate
that with modern semidefinite program solvers i): the lower bound method c
an provide tight approximations to the ground state energies for chemical
and condensed matter model systems that are challenging for traditional me
thods and\n ii) provide a computationally efficient method for fermionic m
arginal tomography that will be paramount for finding utility with near-te
rm quantum resources.\n\nhttps://indico.fnal.gov/event/17199/contributions
