Firstly, I will introduce digital-analog and purely digital methods for quantum simulations of fermionic models. The digital-analog approach provides a higher degree of scalability than purely digital or analog techniques, and it is suitable for implementing quantum simulations of interacting fermions and bosons in condensed matter, and quantum field theories . Purely digital quantum simulations [2,3,4] are grouped under standard discrete-variable quantum computation, while analog quantum simulators with bosonic fields can be described with the language of continuous-variable (CV) quantum computation.
The second part of the talk is devoted to analyzing the factors that may yield quantum advantage. In particular, Wigner negativity is known to be a necessary resource for computational advantage in several quantum-computing architectures, including those based on continuous variables [5,6]. However, it is not a sufficient resource, and it is an open question under which conditions CV circuits displaying Wigner negativity offer the potential for quantum advantage. I will present large families of circuits that display large Wigner negativity and yet are classically efficiently simulatable , although they were not recognized as such by previously available theorems.
