The Schwinger model exhibits several features which are also present in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), such as confinement and spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking. Using the Schwinger model, I will discuss the real-time dynamics of the string breaking mechanism, non-equilibrium dynamics, and the preparation of thermal states. I will present numerical results using both simulators and quantum devices from IBM.
