Title: Quantum Simulation with Atoms and Ions
Speaker: Peter Zoller University of Innsbruck
Time: 2019-11-19 11:00-2019-11-19 12:00
Venue: FIT 1-222


The talk focuses on recent developments in quantum simulation in theory-experiment collaborations at IQOQI Innsbruck. We will discuss two topics: self-verifying variational quantum simulation of lattice models on a trapped ion platform; and measurement protocols employing statistical correlations between randomized measurements to measure Renyi entropies, and cross-platform verification of quantum computers and quantum simulators.
