The Sixth Conference on NUCLEI and MESOSCOPIC Physics (NMP2022)

Abstract:  The Sixth Conference on NUCLEI and MESOSCOPIC Physics (NMP21) will be held at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams / National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (FRIB/NSCL) at Michigan State University (MSU), East Lansing, Michigan, USA We hope that NMP22 can be an effective stage for experts to interact and exchange ideas on a diverse set of topics and lead to cross-disciplinary collaborations. To meet the goal of the meeting, the focus talks will be 20 min & 10 min for discussion; the regular talks will be 10 min & 5 min for discussion; all talks will be a review-type presentations (including discussion time). The primary topics of interest are: Many-body quantum theory, Experiments with mesoscopic systems and exotic nuclei, Open and marginally stable mesoscopic systems, Quantum transport, Dynamic symmetries, Collectivity, chaos, and thermalization, Mesoscopic phase transitions, Superfluidity and superconductivity, Unconventional and topological systems, Fundamental symmetries in mesoscopic systems, Quantum computing and mesoscopic physics The abstract submission deadline is October 15, 2022, submit directly to Vladimir Zelevinsky zelevins@nscl.msu.edu. The Sixth Conference is supported by FRIB and Department of Physics and Astronomy at MSU. Contact NMP at nmp@nscl.msu.edu.

FRIB-TA Summer School: Quantum Computing and Nuclear Few- and Many-Body Problems

Abstract:  Scientific rationale: Recent developments in quantum information systems and technologies offer the possibility to address some of the most challenging large-scale problems in science, whether they are represented by complicated interacting quantum mechanical systems or classical systems. The last years have seen a rapid and exciting development in algorithms and quantum hardware. The emphasis of this summer school is to highlight, through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises and practice sessions, how quantum computing algorithms can be used to study nuclear few- and many-body problems of relevance for low-energy nuclear physics. And how quantum computing algorithms can aid in studying systems with increasingly many more degrees of freedom compared with more classical few- and many-body methods. Several quantum algorithms for solving quantum-mechanical few- and many-particle problems will be discussed. The lectures will start with the basic ideas of quantum computing. Thereafter, through examples from nuclear physics, we will elucidate how different quantum algorithms can be used to study these systems. The results from various quantum computing algorithms will be compared to standard methods like full configuration interaction theory, field theories on the lattice, in-medium similarity renormalization group and coupled cluster theories.
