A tensorial toolkit for quantum computing in lattice gauge theory
2019 May 29
In most lattice simulations, the variables of integration are compact and character expansion (for instance Fourier analysis for U(1) models) can be used to rewrite the partition function and average observables as discrete sums of contracted tensors. These reformulations have been used for RG blocking but they also naturally fit the needs of quantum computing. We discuss FAQ about tensorial reformulations: effects of truncations on symmetries, boundary conditions, Grassmann variables, and other recent aspects of quantum computing in the same context.
