However, a more natural physical problem had escaped the community's attention until recent years: How hard is it to simulate local measurements on ground states of many-body systems (denoted APX-SIM)? Indeed, this is arguably among the most fundamental questions facing experimentalists aiming to understand the low-temperature properties of physical systems. In this talk, we discuss a sequence of works which show that this problem is, perhaps surprisingly, even harder than QMA - it is P^QMA[log]-complete, for P^QMA[log] the class of decision problems solvable in polynomial time with access to logarithmically many queries to a QMA oracle. Along the way, we will see that this odd-looking class captures not only other physical problems such as estimating spectral gaps of local Hamiltonians, but that the APX-SIM problem remains hard even on ever-simpler-looking systems, such as the 2D Heisenberg interaction and 1D translationally invariant systems.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>This talk covers a sequence of works, starting with one of Andris Ambainis, followed by joint works with (in alphabetical order) Johannes Bausch, Stephen Piddock, Justin Yirka, and James Watson.</div> ​</div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/Pontus-Vikstal.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/Pontus-Vikstal.aspxPontus Vikstål - Microtechnology and Nanoscience<p>Online</p><p>​Title: Application of the quantum approximate optimization algorithm to combinatorial optimization problems</p>​Pontus Vikstål is a PhD student at the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory, MC2<div>Opponent: <span style="font-family:&quot;open sans&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif">Sevag Gharibian, Paderborn Universität, Germany​</span><br /><div>The licentiate seminar will be held online on Zoom: <a>https://chalmers.zoom.us/s/63699338637​</a></div> <div><br /></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/Yu-Zheng.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Pages/Yu-Zheng.aspxYu Zheng - Microtechnology and Nanoscience<p>Online</p><p>​Title: Gaussian conversion protocols for cubic phase state generation</p><div>Yu Zheng is a PhD student at the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory, MC2<br />Opponent: Professor Christopher Wilson, University of Waterloo<br />The licentiate seminar will be held online on Zoom:<span style="display:inline-block">  <a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/64044076764">https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/64044076764</a><br /></span></div> <div>To be admitted, please enter the letters: <strong>YZlic </strong><br />As you enter the meeting, please make sure that your username reflects your actual full name for easy recognition.<br /><span style="display:inline-block"></span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/wacqt/calendar/Pages/sp1.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/wacqt/calendar/Pages/sp1.aspxWACQT PhD student presentations - save the date<p>Online</p><p></p><p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">A serie with WACQT PhD student presentations. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">We aim for four half-day meetings online, where each PhD student give a fifteen-minute-long presentation (including questions).</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">To avoid collisions in your schedules we ask you to save following dates: <strong>3 February, 3 March, 7 April and 5 May between 9:00 - 12:00.</strong> </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">This will give nine presentations per half-day, in total 36 during the spring, equal to the number of PhD-students presently active within WACQT. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">Each half-day will be started by a PI who will give a short update on WACQT activities and research highlights.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><br /></p> <p class="MsoPlainText"></p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/wacqt/calendar/Pages/ip-lund.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/wacqt/calendar/Pages/ip-lund.aspxSeminar series IP-based utilisation: Lund specific<p>Online</p><p>We would like to welcome you to this seminar series about IP-based utilisation!
