I have just moved to the Center for Quantum Technologies in Singapore, after spending the last 3 years as a Merton College JRF in Theoretical Physics and a Senior Research Fellow in Oxford University Department of Materials. My research focuses largely on theoretical aspects of quantum information processing. In particular I am interested in spin networks, measurement based computation, cryptography and computational complexity.

Yes, that is true. Calculating ground states seems to be beyond their reach though.

It definitely can only make things harder as you can encode a discrete system in the CV but not necessarily the other way around.

By which I mean the problem with simulating the system, not a problem with your answer.

The problem here, of course, is that the field modes are continuous variables.
