Title:Algebraic geometry of tree tensor networks
Seminar:Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar
Speaker:Sara Jamshidi, Penn State
Abstract:
Tree tensor networks have been used to model the ground states of Hamiltonians in condensed matter physics and quantum chemistry. Exactly which quantum states can be represented by a tree tensor network with a given topology and given restrictions on the parameter tensors? When the restrictions are algebraic, the set of states is a projective algebraic variety. We describe those varieties, using techniques originally developed for phylogenetics.
