Post-Anthropocene Computation: Rewilding the Quantum Field

Speaker: Natalie Klco
Location: Online Event

Abstract: Whether interested in simulating dynamical interactions of fundamental particles or otherwise implementing a large-scale quantum computation, the field theoretic framework of spatially distributed quantum degrees of freedom is invaluable. By leveraging their natural capacity to describe highly entangled many-body states, the use of atomic-scale quantum systems to form a computational framework for the exploration of sub-atomic phenomena is envisioned to be non-perturbatively advantageous. In this talk, I will share a developing perspective on the entanglement structures within quantum fields and discuss resulting implications for the design of effective field theories and future practical quantum simulations of quantum fields.
