Duke Physics Colloquium: Calculating Nature Naturally
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Natalie Klco (University of Washington)
"Calculating Nature Naturally" Driven by advances in the precision control and manipulation of quantum systems, progress is being made in harnessing quantum complexity to empower a new framework of computing. With Hilbert spaces growing exponentially and a natural representation of entanglement, such systems are viable pathways to a quantitatively deeper understanding of the non perturbative phenomena of highly correlated systems from QCD to quantum materials. With this program I will discuss advancements in the conceptual design and physical implementation of quantum computational approaches to quantum field theories for nuclear and particle physics. Faculty host: Roxanne Springer Refreshments will be available before the event in room 130.
