"Machine Learning Meets Quantum Many-body Physics"

Di Luo , MIT
[Host: Gia-Wei Chern]

Simulation of quantum many-body physics, such as looking for ground state properties and real time dynamics, plays an important role in the study of condensed matter physics, high energy physics and quantum information science. The recent advancement of machine learning provides new opportunities for tackling challenges in simulating quantum many-body physics. In this talk, I will first discuss a class of wave functions via neural network transformation, neural network backflow,  which can fulfill the anti-symmetry property and capture the correlation and the sign structure for strongly-interacting fermionic physics. Next, I will talk about recent progress of simulating continuum quantum field theories with neural quantum field state [2], and lattice gauge theories such as 2+1D quantum electrodynamics with finite density dynamical fermions using gauge symmetric neural networks [3,4]. Finally, I will present a neural network representation based on positive-value-operator measurements for quantum circuit and open quantum system dynamics simulation [5].
