# Quantum computational representation of gauge field theory. (arXiv:1612.09291v3 [quant-ph] UPDATED)

Presented is a quantum computing model of a quantum field theory for a system

of fermions interacting via a massive gauge field. The model describes a

relativistic superconducting fluid and uses a metric tensor field to both

encode the fermion's intrinsic spin in the torsion of curved space and encode

the coupling of fermions via a massive 4-potential field. The quantum computing

model is a lattice model whose cell size is a deformation parameter: the

equivalent lattice and curved-space gauge field theory models both reduce to

quantum field theory in flat Minkowski space at zero cell size. The low-energy

expansions of the lattice model and Euler-Lagrange equations of the

curved-space gauge field theory are the same equations of motion. The fermion

and gauge fields obey the Dirac and Proca equations, and the gauge field

strength is determined by the fermion field.
