NOvel Quantum simulators – connectIng Areas

Project description

Quantum simulation and rubber sheet geometry shed new light on diverse quantum systems

Topology is a branch of mathematics concerned with the study of shapes and their arrangement in space. Sometimes called rubber sheet geometry, it is concerned with the properties of objects that are preserved under continuous deformations like stretching and bending. It was historically confined to the realm of mathematics. Still, its application to the physics of materials is providing unique insight, recognised in part by the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics for the role of topology in understanding exotic forms of matter. The EU-funded NOQIA project will expand this crossroads significantly by developing novel theoretical approaches and descriptions. The project will unite quantum simulation and topological effects and systems with the realm of ultrafast phenomena and attoscience, quantum machine learning and quantum neural networks.
