Lattice Gauge Theories form a very successful framework for studying nonperturbative gauge field physics, in particular in Quantum Chromodynamics. Recently, their quantum simulation on atomic and solid-state platforms has been discussed, aiming at overcoming some of the difficulties still faced by the conventional approaches (such as the sign problem and real time evolution). While the actual implementations of a lattice gauge theory on a quantum simulator may differ in terms of the simulating…
