Research team creates a quantum simulation that can be scaled to large systems

For most people, frustration is a condition to be avoided. But for scientists studying certain 'frustrated' ensembles of interacting components - that is, those which cannot settle into a state that minimizes each interaction - it may be the key to understanding a host of puzzling phenomena that affect systems from neural networks and social structures to protein folding and magnetism.
