报告摘要:Tensor network states are new kinds of variational wavefunctions that help us to understand quantum phases and phase transitions beyond Landau paradigm. In this talk, I will first review the major development of tensor-network simulation in the past two decades. In particular, I will introduce the novel concept of long-range entanglement and entanglement renormalization. Then I will discuss the major break throughs made by tensor-network simulations in recent years. If time permits, I will also mention the relationship between deep learning and tensor network simulation.
