Toward simulating Superstring/M-theory on a Quantum Computer

October 23 at 17:00 - 18:00, 2020

Dr. Masanori Hanada (Department of Mathematics, University of Surrey, UK)

We present a framework for simulating superstring/M-theory on a quantum computer, based on holographic duality. Because holographicduality maps superstring/M-theory to quantum field theories (QFTs), w...more
