Obtaining real-time dynamics of particle collisions is a long-standing goal in high energy and nuclear physics. Developing protocols to simulate lattice gauge theories on quantum simulators offer a strategy to probe these scattering processes. Both long-range and short-range quantum Ising chains exhibit the confinement of quasiparticles, analogous to the high-energy confinement of quarks in bound, meson states. In this talk, we will discuss a proposal to simulate meson scattering in a trapped-ion simulator. We will begin by discussing experimentally realizable state preparation protocols and then end with an analysis of possible elastic and inelastic scattering channels.

(Pizza and refreshments will be served after the talk.)
