NU-Q-iTHEMS-YITP Lecture: Applications of Quantum Computation in Quantum Field Theory
- July 6 (Thu) at 10:15 - July 7 (Fri) at 17:00, 2023 (JST)
- Masazumi Honda (Assistant Professor, Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University)
- #A317, Building A, Faculty of Science, Niigata University
- via Zoom
This lecture aims to provide an introductory explanation of the application of quantum computation in numerical simulations of quantum field theory. We will begin by covering the fundamental aspects of quantum computation, followed by a discussion on its application to simulating spin systems. Subsequently, we will delve into introductory explanations of continuous field quantum theory and lattice field quantum theory, and discuss their simulation methods. Additionally, practical exercises utilizing IBM Qiskit for quantum simulations will be conducted.
Important Notice for Participants:
Please note that loaner laptops for the practical exercises will not be provided, so please bring your own laptops. Prior to the lecture, please ensure that you have set up your environment to use Jupyter Notebook, for example, by installing Anaconda.
Organizers: Quantum Research Center (NU-Q), Niigata University / Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Kyoto University
