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.

Motivated by the limited capabilities of near-term quantum computers, we reconsider the Hamiltonian formulation of lattice gauge theories and the method of truncating Hilbert space to render it finite-dimensional. Conventional formulations lead to a Hilbert space largely spanned by unphysical states; given the current inability to perform fault-tolerant large scale quantum computations,...
