Seminars

On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives.

The location will be announced with the event.

Simulating ground states and elementary excitations with PEPS (Dr. Laurens Vanderstraeten)

Simulating ground states and elementary excitations with PEPS
In this talk we review variational PEPS algorithms for two-dimensional quantum spin systems. First we focus on the optimization of ground-state approximations for generic hamiltonians, and show some benchmark results. Next, we build excited-state wavefunctions on top of such a PEPS ground state using a generalization of the single-mode approximation. [more]
