We examine the problem of simulating lattice gauge theories on a universal quantum computer. The basic strategy of our approach is to transcribe lattice gauge theories in the Hamiltonian formulation into a Hamiltonian involving only Pauli spin operators such that the simulation can be performed on a quantum computer using only one- and two-qubit manipulations. We examine three models, the U(1), SU(2), and SU(3) lattice gauge theories, which are transcribed into a spin Hamiltonian up to a cutoff… Expand
