Tricritical Ising model (TIM) is a simple quantum spin chain model with a tricritical point separating a Ising phase transition line from a first-order transition line. We perform quantum simulation of the dynamical phase transition in TIM with Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric. The results in principle could help us to understand the non-equilibrium dynamics in the early universe.
