A 1D Area Law for Gapped Local Hamiltonians

(This post is based on part of a lecture delivered by Boriana Gjura and Prayaag Venkat. See also posts by Ben Edelman and Fred Zhang for more context on Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity.) Introduction In this post we present the Area Law conjecture and prove it rigorously, emphasizing the emergence of approximate ground state projectors as … Continue reading A 1D Area Law for Gapped Local Hamiltonians
