Hands-on Tensor Networks


Lecture details

This lecture will be given by Professor Kennes.


In this hands-on course about the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) the students will learn and implement their own version of a modern DMRG code set up in the natural language of matrix product states (one incarnation of a tensor network). We will write usable code for questions of topical research interest such as for non-equilibrium time-evolution and finite temperature in (quasi) one-dimensional systems, which are at the frontiers of research today. The goal of this course is to teach the details of DMRG -- a powerful numerical method in the fields of contemporary condensed matter physics, cold quantum gases and beyond -- as well as provide every participant with a fully functioning implementation of this tool.
