@article{Ashkenazi2022DualityAA, title={Duality as a feasible physical transformation for quantum simulation}, author={Shachar Ashkenazi and Erez Zohar}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2022} }

Duality transformations are very important in both classical and quantum physics. They allow one to relate two seemingly different formulations of the same physical realm through clever mathematical manipulations, and offer numerous advantages for the study of many-body physics. In this work, we suggest a method which shall introduce them to the world of quantum simulation too: a feasible scheme for implementing duality transformations as physical operations, mapping between dual quantum states…
