model on a simple graph at fixed magnetization (given as part of the instance
specification) is QMA-complete. To show this, we strengthen a previous result
by establishing QMA-completeness for approximating the ground energy of the
Bose-Hubbard model on simple graphs. Using a connection between the XY and
Bose-Hubbard models that we exploited in previous work, this establishes
QMA-completeness of the XY model.
