Title:Tensor Network Models in Physics
Seminar:Tensor Networks and Applications Seminar
Speaker:Jason Morton, Penn State University
Abstract:
I will present a purely expository and informal account of some of the tensor network models used in quantum condensed matter physics, including MPS, PEPS, and MERA. I'll discuss the definitions, approximation results, and a little about the estimation algorithms such as DMRG used to fit the models in numerical experiments. If time permits, I may discuss the connection with entanglement entropy and area laws.
