"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.
