Proposal for the Quantum Simulation of the CP(2) Model on Optical Lattices
The 2d CP(N-1) models share a number of features with QCD, like asymptotic freedom, a dynamically generated mass gap and topological sectors. They have been formulated and analysed successfully in
Field and Gauge Theories with Ultracold Gauge Potentials and Fields
In the last decade there has been an intense activity aimed at the quantum simulation of interacting many-body systems using cold atoms [1, 2]. The idea of quantum simulations traces back to Feynman

Thanks to their finite-dimensional Hilbert space and their economical mechanism of reaching the continuum limit by dimensional reduction, quantum link models provide a resource efficient framework for the quantum simulation and computation of gauge theories.
Lattice gauge theory simulations in the quantum information era
The many-body problem is ubiquitous in the theoretical description of physical phenomena, ranging from the behaviour of elementary particles to the physics of electrons in solids. Most of our

The design of quantum many body systems, which have to fulfill an extensive number of constraints, appears as a formidable challenge within the field of quantum simulation. Lattice gauge theories are
From Asymptotic Freedom to θ Vacua: Qubit Embeddings of the O(3) Nonlinear σ Model.
Conventional lattice formulations of θ vacua in the 1+1-dimensional O(3) nonlinear sigma model suffer from a sign problem. Here, we construct the first sign-problem-free regularization for arbitrary
SU(4) topological resonating valence bond spin liquid on the square lattice
We generalize the construction of the spin-1/2 SU(2) resonating valence bond (RVB) state to the case of the self-conjugate $\mathbf{6}$ representation of SU(4). As for the case of SU(2) [J.-Y. Chen

Ultracold Fermi gases with emergent SU(N) symmetry
Recent experimental and theoretical progress on ultracold alkaline-earth Fermi gases with emergent SU(N) symmetry is reviewed and some of the challenges that lie ahead for the realization of such phases such as reaching the temperature scale required to observe magnetic and more exotic quantum orders are discussed.
Lattice model for the SU(N) Néel to valence-bond solid quantum phase transition at large N.
It is shown that both order parameters vanish at a single quantum-critical point, whose universal exponents for large enough N (here up to N=12) approach the values obtained in a 1/N expansion of the noncompact CP(N-1) field theory.

Cold-atom quantum simulator for SU(2) Yang-Mills lattice gauge theory.
This Letter suggests a realization of a non-Abelian lattice gauge theory-SU(2) Yang-Mills in (1 + 1) dimensions, using ultracold atoms, and shows that gauge invariance is a direct consequence of angular momentum conservation and thus is fundamental and robust.
