EPJ Quantum Technology Highlight - Quantum simulators explained

Posted By admin, Tuesday 12 August 2014

11 August 2014 Springer Science+Business Media

Everything you ever wanted to know about quantum simulators summed up in a new review from EPJ Quantum Technology

As part of a new Thematic Series on Quantum Simulations, the open access journal EPJ Quantum Technology has just published an overview of just what a quantum simulator is, namely a device that actively uses quantum effects to answer questions on model systems. This review, published by Tomi Johnson and colleagues from the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore and the University of Oxford, UK, outlines various approaches used in quantum simulators.

Specifically, the authors focus on the difference between the purpose of operations referred to as 'simulation' and 'computation'. They argue this distinction is related to the purpose of an operation, to our level of confidence in and to our expectations with regard to its accuracy.

They then explain the role of simulations in science, in particular, how simulation reveals information about a mathematical function or model in relation to a system. This approach is reminiscent of physicist Richard Feynman's definition of simulation, which is akin to using a physical device to learn about a real physical system.

Such simulation of the function of a system only takes its full significance when compared with the outcome of the same function on a real-life system of interest. The outcome helps decide whether or not the model accurately represents the real system. If the representation is thought to be accurate, the quantum simulator can then loosely be considered to be a simulator for the system of interest.

Finally the authors also explain the threshold between quantum and classical simulations. In this context, Johnson and colleagues suggest that there are many more questions pertaining to the work of simulators that need to be answered. These include: Can we predict in advance where the results of quantum simulators are more sensitive to errors? How does this overlap with the regimes of classical simulability?

Which side to put the survival blanket? a new paper by Laurence Viennot and Nicolas Décamp

Posted By Administration, Tuesday 29 July 2014
Abstract: Although a survival blanket is a well-known object, it is not obvious which side, silver or gold, should be put outside in order better to protect against cold. This paper sums up the reasons why this problem may be instructive, beyond its practical implications: Common ideas and instructions for use share a restricted analysis, limited to the high reflective power of the silver side. An analysis and a solution of this problem are proposed, and some activities with students are suggested.
