The Quantum Game of Life
One of the most intriguing applications of quantum simulators developed in PASQuanS is their application to the study of lattice gauge theories.
Lattice gauge theories describe the physics of highly diverse and fundamental phenomena, ranging from the Standard Model that describes the fundamental constituents of our universe to materials such as superconductors and topological matter. Indeed, R. Feymann’s seminal quantum computation idea sprang from the need for efficiently performing such simulations. In PASQUANS, alongside the actual development of the quantum simulators, we explore possible implementations of lattice gauge theory simulation in the currently available Rydberg quantum simulators together with applications to quantum cellular automata such as the quantum game of life (see http://arxiv.org/abs/2005.01763).
