abstract = {In short-range interacting systems, the speed at which entanglement can be established between two separated points is limited by a constant Lieb-Robinson velocity. Long-range interacting systems are capable of faster entanglement generation, but the degree of the speed-up possible is an open question. In this paper, we present a protocol capable of transferring a quantum state across a distance\ L\ in\ d\ dimensions using long-range interactions with strength bounded by\ 1/rα. If\ α\<d, the state transfer time is asymptotically independent of\ L; if\ α=d, the time is logarithmic in distance\ L; if\ d\<α\<d+1, transfer occurs in time proportional to\ Lα\−d; and if\ α\≥d+1, it occurs in time proportional to\ L. We then use this protocol to upper bound the time required to create a state specified by a MERA (multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz) tensor network, and show that, if the linear size of the MERA state is\ L, then it can be created in time that scales with\ L\ identically to state transfer up to multiplicative logarithmic corrections.
