Under the perspective of realizing analog quantum simulations of lattice gauge theories, ladder geometries offer an intriguing playground, relevant for ultracold atom experiments. Here, we investigate Hamiltonian lattice gauge theories

# Toward simulating Superstring/M-theory on a quantum computer. (arXiv:2011.06573v1 [hep-th])

We present a novel framework for simulating matrix models on a quantum computer. Supersymmetric matrix models have natural applications to superstring/M-theory and gravitational physics, in an appropriate limit of parameters.

# Quantum simulation of gauge theory via orbifold lattice. (arXiv:2011.06576v1 [hep-th])

We propose a new framework for simulating $\text{U}(k)$ Yang-Mills theory on a universal quantum computer. This construction utilizes the orbifold lattice formulation proposed by Kaplan, Katz, and Unsal, who originally

# Gauge and Poincar\’e invariant canonical symplectic algorithms for real-time lattice strong-field quantum electrodynamics. (arXiv:1910.09215v3 [quant-ph] UPDATED)

A class of high-order canonical symplectic structure-preserving geometric algorithms are developed for high-quality simulations of the quantized Dirac-Maxwell theory based strong-field quantum electrodynamics (SFQED) and relativistic quantum plasmas (RQP) phenomena.

# Lattice N=4 super Yang-Mills at Strong Coupling. (arXiv:2009.07334v2 [hep-lat] UPDATED)

In this paper we present results from numerical simulations of N=4 super Yang-Mills for two color gauge theory over a wide range of ‘t Hooft coupling $0<\lambda\le 30$ using a

# Relativistic three-particle quantization condition for nondegenerate scalars. (arXiv:2011.05520v1 [hep-lat])

The formalism relating the relativistic three-particle infinite-volume scattering amplitude to the finite-volume spectrum has been developed thus far only for identical or degenerate particles. We provide the generalization to the

# Gravitational tests of electroweak relaxation. (arXiv:2011.05795v1 [astro-ph.CO])

We consider a scenario in which the electroweak scale is stabilized via the relaxion mechanism during inflation, focussing on the case in which the back-reaction potential is generated by the

# Properties of $P_c(4312)$ pentaquark. (arXiv:2011.05828v1 [hep-ph])

We present an analysis of the newly observed pentaquark $P_c(4312)^+$ to enlighten its quantum numbers. To do that, the QCD sum rule approach is used. The measured mass of this

# QCD phase structure in strong magnetic fields. (arXiv:2011.04870v1 [hep-lat])

In this proceedings we discuss the natural connection between the reduction of neutral pion mass in the vacuum, and the magnetic catalysis as well as the reduction of transition temperature

# Composite Higgs scenario in mass-split models. (arXiv:2011.05175v1 [hep-ph])

Mass-split composite Higgs models naturally accommodate the experimental observation of a light 125 GeV Higgs boson and predict a large scale separation to other heavier resonances. We explore the SU(3)
