|Title:||Algebraic geometry of tree tensor networks|
|Seminar:||Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Sara Jamshidi, Penn State|
|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.|
