In current classical calculations of quantum many-body systems, the exponentially-growing framework of modern quantum mechanics dictates that a large portion of the universe is required to calculate properties of an infinitesimal version of itself. This fundamental resource requirement suggests that simulating the complexity of quantum systems with purely classical devices is simply not natural. Field theories have been extolled as an efficient muse of quantum simulation and even the basis of universal quantum computers themselves. It is with this perspective that I will discuss how understanding the structure and dynamics of entanglement can be a window into the scattering of fundamental particles as well as a guide in designing efficient quantum simulations of field theories.
