Upcoming Events

(g-2)_mu from lattice QCD and experiments: 4.2 sigma?
Zoltan Fodor, Pennsylvania State University
Event Type: HEP Seminar

Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Abstract: Twenty years ago, in an experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory, physicists detected what seemed to be a discrepancy between measurements of the muon's magnetic moment and theoretical calculations of what that measurement should be, raising the tantalizing possibility of physical particles or forces as yet undiscovered. The Fermilab team has announced that their precise measurement supports this possibility. The reported significance for new physics is 4.2 sigma just slightly below the discovery level of 5 sigma. However, an extensive new calculation of the muon's magnetic moment using lattice QCD by the BMW-collaboration reduces the gap between theory and experimental measurements. The lattice result appeared in Nature on the day of the Fermilab announcement. In this talk, both the theoretical and experimental aspects are summarized with two possible narratives: a) almost discovery or b) Standard Model reinforced. Some details of the lattice calculation are also shown.

Experiments on Superconducting Processors at the Dawn of NISQ Era

Abstract: In 2019, the Google Quantum team demonstrated that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical computer. Going beyond this milestone, we now seek to utilize these Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) processors to find algorithms that are of interest to the broader scientific community. However, achieving this goal is an outstanding challenge both theoretically, e.g. in finding suitable algorithms, as well as experimentally, e.g. extending coherence of the system. By presenting some of our recent works, we discuss the challenges and our progress. In particular, we present results on preparing the ground state of the Toric code Hamiltonian using an efficient quantum circuit [1]. Combining various error mitigation techniques, we study transitions to the time crystalline phase [2], which is challenging due to limited programmability, finite coherence time, and finite size of current processors. Our results demonstrate the promise of studying condensed matter problems with NISQ processors.
