The capability to generate and manipulate quantum states in high-dimensional Hilbert spaces is a crucial step for the development of quantum technologies, from quantum communication to quantum computation. One-dimensional quantum walk dynamics represents a valid tool in the task of engineering arbit...

Recovering an unknown Hamiltonian from measurements is an increasingly important task for certification of noisy quantum devices and simulators. Recent works have succeeded in recovering the Hamiltonian of an isolated quantum system with local interactions from long-ranged correlators of a single ei...

We show that an array of identical two-level systems coupled losslessly to a one-dimensional waveguide is able to realize a high-fidelity conditional phase shift useful for quantum logic. We propose two arrangements of emitters (one that relies on direct interactions between the emitters, and one th...

The scattering-quantum-random-walk scheme has found success as a basis for search algorithms on highly symmetric graph structures. In this paper we examine its effectiveness at locating a specially marked vertex on square grid graphs, consisting of ${N}^{2}$ nodes. We simulate these quantum systems ...

In order to exploit quantum advantages, quantum algorithms are indispensable for operating machine learning with quantum computers. We here propose an intriguing hybrid approach of quantum information processing for quantum linear regression, which utilizes both discrete and continuous quantum varia...

A bipartite state ${ρ}^{AB}$ has a $k$-symmetric extension if there exists a ($k+1$)-partite state ${ρ}^{A{B}_{1}{B}_{2}...{B}_{k}}$ with marginals ${ρ}^{A{B}_{i}}={ρ}^{AB},∀i$. The $k$-symmetric extension is called bosonic if ${ρ}^{A{B}_{1}{B}_{2}...{B}_{k}}$ is supported on the symmetric subspace ...

We derive a theory for the generation of arbitrary spin-spin interactions in superconducting circuits via periodic time modulation of the individual qubits or the qubit-qubit interactions. The modulation frequencies in our approach are in the microwave or radio-frequency regime, so the required fiel...

Quantum computers can efficiently simulate many-body systems. As a widely used Hamiltonian simulation tool, the Trotter-Suzuki scheme splits the evolution into the number of Trotter steps $N$ and approximates the evolution of each step by a product of exponentials of each individual term of the tota...

We propose and study a conformal field theory (CFT) model with random position-dependent velocity that, as we argue, naturally emerges as an effective description of heat transport in one-dimensional quantum many-body systems with certain static random impurities. We present exact analytical results...

Classical phase space flow is inviscid. Here we show that in quantum phase space Wigner’s probability current $\mathbf{J}$ can be effectively viscous. This results in shear suppression in quantum phase space dynamics which enforces Zurek’s limit for the minimum size scale of spotty structures that d...
