I will introduce the field of quantum simulations from a wide
scientific perspective. Then, I will discuss the relevance of quantum
simulations for reproducing different aspects of quantum physics:
nonrelativistic and relativistic quantum dynamics, physical and unphysical
quantum operations, as well as strong and ultrastrong light-matter
interactions. Finally, I will give examples in the context of trapped-ion
and circuit QED technologies.

Superconducting qubits based on Josephson junctions are a promising
platform for quantum computation, reaching quality factors of over one
million. Such high quality factors enable the investigation of
decoherence mechanisms with high accuracy. An intrinsic decoherence
process originates from the coupling between the qubit degree of freedom
and the quasiparticles that tunnel across Josephson junctions. In this
talk I will review the general theory of quasiparticle effects, valid

In the XENON dark matter search experiment, trace contamination of Xe by Kr contributes background events through the beta decay of radioactive Kr-85. To achieve the required sensitivity of the detector, the contamination must be reduced below the part per trillion (ppt) level and this level must be known precisely. We have developed an atom trap trace analysis (ATTA) device using standard atom cooling and trapping techniques to detect Kr below the ppt level.

A fundamental question in complexity theory is how much resource is
needed to solve k independent instances of a problem compared to the
resource required to solve one instance. Suppose solving one instance of
a problem with probability of correctness p, we require c units of some
resource in a given model of computation. A direct sum theorem states
that in order to compute k independent instances of a problem, it

The manipulation and detection of individual quantum excitations forms the basis of modern quantum physics experiments. However, most of these experiments have been restricted to systems composed of only a few particles.
