Remarkable advances in the development of quantum computers are accelerating efforts to simulate features of matter that are not accessible to classical computing or analytic techniques, ranging from the production of matter in the early universe to exotic materials for cleaner energy.  Quantum simulations of the dynamics of systems of fundamental particles, such as quarks, gluons, neutrinos and more, which are universally challenging, may provide early achievable successes for quantum computers. I will discuss the early progress in developing quantum simulations, currently at very early stages of reduced complexity, directed toward addressing scientific objectives in fundamental physics.
