Abstract
We prove that continuous variable quantum information processing via Gaussian preserving operations, with Gaussian input states plus a (highly nonclassical) Fock number state, and subject to homodyne measurements and feedforward, can be efficiently simulated on a classical computer. This result reinforces the importance of the cubic phase state as an offline resource for universal continuous variable quantum information processing. We study the practical realization of this state by determining the Wigner function for an approximate cubic phase state prepared via two-mode squeezing with postselection on the signal field by displacing and counting photons in the idler field.
