Basic Elements for Simulations of Standard Model Physics with Quantum Annealers: Multigrid and Clock States

We explore the potential of D-Wave’s quantum annealers for computing basic components required for quantum simulations of Standard Model physics.  By implementing a basic multigrid (including zooming) and specializing Feynman-clock algorithms, D-Wave’s Advantage is used to study harmonic and anharmonic oscillators relevant for lattice scalar field theories and effective field theories, the time evolution of a single plaquette of SU(3) Yang-Mills lattice gauge field theory, and the dynamics of flavor entanglement in four neutrino systems.
