Yesterday I gave the first of three QUEST special lectures. You can find the slides here. Readers of this blog will be familiar with the content: I talked about the simulation problem and hamiltonian complexity and ended with the result that the dynamics of a 1D quantum spin system can be efficiently approximated (by a quantum cellular automaton) for .

In the next lecture I’ll show how to turn this result around and use quantum circuits to simulate the statics and dynamics of strongly interacting quantum systems via the variational principle.
