Fate of Lattice Gauge Theories Under Decoherence

  title={Fate of Lattice Gauge Theories Under Decoherence},
  author={Jad C. Halimeh and Valentin Kasper and Philipp Hauke},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Gases},
A major test of the capabilities of modern quantum simulators and NISQ devices is the reliable realization of gauge theories, which constitute a gold standard of implementational efficacy. In addition to unavoidable unitary errors, realistic experiments suffer from decoherence, which compromises gauge invariance and, therefore, the gauge theory itself. Here, we study the effect of decoherence on the quench dynamics of a lattice gauge theory. Rigorously identifying the gauge violation as a…

Cold atoms meet lattice gauge theory
This article reviews activities related to quantum simulations for lattice field theories performed by the Quantum Optics Theory group at ICFO and their collaborators from 19 institutions all over the world and describes efforts to design experimentally friendly simulators of these and other models relevant for particle physics.
Noise Improvements in Quantum Simulations of sQED using Qutrits
We present an argument for the advantages of using qudits over qubits for scalar Quantum Electrodynamics in (1 + 1)d. We measure the mass gap using an out of time correlator as a function of noise
Variational Quantum Algorithms
An overview of the field of Variational Quantum Algorithms is presented and strategies to overcome their challenges as well as the exciting prospects for using them as a means to obtain quantum advantage are discussed.

Gauging the Kitaev chain
We gauge the fermion parity symmetry of the Kitaev chain. While the bulk of the model becomes an Ising chain of gauge-invariant spins in a tilted field, near the boundaries the global fermion parity
Non-Abelian gauge invariance from dynamical decoupling
Lattice gauge theories are fundamental to such distinct fields as particle physics, condensed matter or quantum information theory. The recent progress in the control of artificial quantum systems


Suppressing Coherent Gauge Drift in Quantum Simulations
Simulations of field theories on noisy quantum computers must contend with errors introduced by that noise. For gauge theories, a large class of errors violate gauge symmetry, and thus may result in

Quantum Theory of Fields
To say that this is the best book on the quantum theory of fields is no praise, since to my knowledge it is the only book on this subject. But it is a very good and most useful book. The original was
