Winter Project
Tensor Network / Matrix Product State methods for computational quantum many-body problems

Tensor Networks provide a representation of a quantum many-body wave-function (or a classical partition function) that is suitable for computational methods, mainly for low-dimensional problems (1D and 2D). The most mature branch of tensor networks is known as Matrix Product States (MPS), also...
