Quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories (LGTs), aiming at tackling non-perturbative particle and condensed matter physics, has recently received a lot of interest and attention, resulting in many theoretical proposals, as well as several experimental implementations. One of the current challenges is to go beyond 1+1 dimensions, where four-body (plaquette) interactions, not contained naturally in quantum simulating devices, appear. In this Letter, we propose a method to obtain them based on… Expand
