When quantum particles fly like bees

Science News | Press Release | News

A quantum system consisting of only 51 charged atoms can assume more than two quadrillion different states. Calculating the system's behavior is a piece of cake for a quantum simulator. Yet even with todays supercomputers it is almost impossible to verify the result. Researchers of the Munich Quantum Valley (MQV) initiative and the University of Innsbruck have now shown how these systems can be described using equations from the 18th century.
