Workshop “Recent progress on tensor network methods” organized by Hans Fischer Senior Fellow Örs Legeza

Events |


Hans Fischer Senior Fellow Örs Legeza (Wigner Research Centre for Physics, Budapest) and his host professor Gero Friesecke (Chair for Analysis, TUM) are organizing a four-day workshop at the IAS on Recent progress on tensor network methods together with colleagues Thomas Barthel of Duke University and Henrik Larsson from the University of California.

The workshop will take place from April 22-25, 2024, and aims to bring together condensed matter physicists, mathematicians, and theoretical chemists to continue the exploration of this active and growing field of research and to stimulate further developments of tensor network methods.

Numerous prominent scientists from the field have been invited as speakers for the workshop and young researchers are encouraged to attend and contribute to the workshop with talks and posters.

The focus of the workshop will be on innovative ideas for moving beyond current limits of quantum many-body simulations despite the major challenges of high dimensionality and accuracy. Topics include the interplay between modes, rank truncation, and network topology, hybridization with other approaches, and parallelization.

  • Mari Carmen Banuls, MPI for Quantum Optics, Garching
  • Thomas Barthel, Duke University
  • Giuseppe Carleo, EPFL Lausanne - tbc
  • Natalia Chepiga, University of Delft
  • Matthias Christandl, University of Copenhagen
