An ICTP Meeting

This Workshop will gather world-leading groups that design, realize, and characterize a new generation of simulators with ultracold atoms and beyond. It will address novel quantum simulators of statistical gauge fields, dynamical lattices, and lattice gauge theory models (LGT), as well as connections to quantum computing and tensor network methods.
Quantum simulators are the systems that can address, deepen our understanding of, and ultimately solve challenging problems of contemporary science: from quantum many body dynamics, to the design of new materials. This Workshop will gather world-leading groups that design, realize experimentally, and characterize a new generation of simulators with ultracold atoms and beyond. In particular, we will focus on novel quantum simulators in ascending degree of experimental complexity: 1) systems where density-dependent gauge fields can change the effective quantum statistics of the particles and realize topological gauge theories; 2) systems in dynamical lattices, with “matter” living on the sites, and dynamical fields/particles living on the bonds, which can be numerically benchmarked using tensor network techniques; and 3) lattice gauge theory models, from systems with Abelian to non-Abelian local gauge symmetry.
  • Analog and digital quantum simulation of Gauge Theories.
  • Tensor Network methods in Lattice Gauge Theories 
  • Cold-atom simulators for Gauge Fields
