Quantum simulation and tensor networks are two many-body physics approaches rooted in quantum information science, which have been widely used recently, especially in condensed matter contexts, proving to be very useful. The first suggests to use controllable quantum systems as simulators of others, which might be otherwise inaccessible or hard to solve; the latter allows one to...

I will discuss our proposal to quantum simulate the Abelian Higgs model in $1+1$ dimensions. While doing this I will show how the energy gap associated with the inclusion of a static charge shows universal finite-size scaling in the discrete lattice model, and the continuous-time quantum model. This finite-size scaling is identical in both limits. I will briefly go into progress being...

With rapid developments in quantum hardware, it is increasingly important to analyze qubit, operator and gate requirements to optimally utilize available quantum resources for computation. In this talk, I present such an analysis for the digitization of interacting scalar field theories onto NISQ-era quantum devices, building upon the foundational work by Jordan, Lee and Preskill. Leveraging...

In an interacting quantum system far from equilibrium, initially local information spreads into and melds with its environment. This has many manifestations, from entanglement spread in quantum quenches to environmental coupling induced by quantum channels. The rate of entropy spread is often difficult to calculate outside of free, perturbative or holographic regimes. We propose an...
