Linear arrays of trapped and laser cooled atomic ions are among the foremost candidates for realizing quantum simulation and computation platforms. High fidelity coherent manipulations together with nearly perfect detection guarantee an unprecedented control over a large number of qubits, which can be used to run quantum algorithms  or engineer Hamiltonians to emulate physical systems of...

In this talk we introduce a lower bound simulation method based on variational determination of the quantum marginal distribution, and how the geometric constraints associated with enforcing feasibility in the variational procedure can be employed to certify physicality in a marginal tomography routine. The feasibility constraints we employ are derived from 'outer' approximations to the...
