Feynman's original vision for a quantum computer was of a physical quantum system whose Hamiltonian could be adjusted in situ in order to simulate the physics of other quantum systems.  Quantum magnetic systems, with localized spins and short range interactions, are perhaps the simplest such physical quantum system that can be implemented in existing solid state technologies.  This lecture will review how a D-Wave 2X quantum annealing processor can be used to realize quantum phase transitions in the transverse field Ising model on an embedded 3-dimensional lattice.
