Abstract: Quantum computing holds the promise to solve specific computational problems much faster than any known classical algorithm. Current quantum computers are, however, too small and too noisy to perform useful calculations. In this talk I will follow a different route and show how to use these systems to study fundamental physical questions, and specifically those related to the dynamics of many-body quantum systems. I will focus on two specific applications of quantum computers on the cloud: the demonstration of the topological property of spin models and the realization of a quantum system with long range interactions. These works raise new basic questions concerning the effects of classical noise on quantum states of matter, and provide a useful benchmark for actual quantum computers.

Speaker: Professor Emanuele Dalla Torre, Bar-Ilan University
