This workshop will focus on applications of quantum computing technologies, algorithms, and theoretical developments of interest to the High Energy Physics community. Fermilab’s Theory Department and Scientific Computing Division are particularly interested in developing collaborations and working groups to target problems related to:

  • Quantum simulation of quantum field theories for strongly coupled relativistic systems
    • Toy models of gauge theories for near-term quantum computing resources, including simulation of restricted subprocesses in non-peturburative gauge theories
    • Tailored quantum computing hardware architectures for digital quantum simulation of local field theories
    • Variational quantum eigensolvers for quantum field theories
  • Quantum algorithms for traditional HEP computational problems, such as phase space integration, loop and amplitude programs, optimization, and machine learning in data analysis.
  • Quantum teleportation experiments and quantum circuit models of quantum gravity systems.
  • Applying qubit technologies to quantum sensors in HEP experiments on the sensitivity frontier.

The workshop will include comprehensive hands on tutorials from Google and demonstrations from other technology industry partners.

This workshop builds on our past November workshop, “Near-term Applications of Quantum Computing” also held at Fermilab, and we hope these two workshops will form the groundwork for a white paper on Quantum Science in HEP.
