Bethe Colloquium by Simone Montangero

January 2021
Montangero

The next Bethe Colloquium will be held on Thursday, January 21, at 4:15 pm.

  • Simone Montangero (Università di Padova)
  • Tensor network algorithms for high-dimensional quantum many-body systems
  • ZOOM webinar

Abstract: We review some recent results on the development of efficient unconstrained tree tensor network algorithms and their application to high-dimensional many-body quantum systems and machine learning problems in High Energy Physics. In particular, we present results on topological two-dimensional systems, two dimensional Rydberg atom systems, and two and three-dimensional lattice gauge theories in presence of fermonic matter. Finally, we present their application to LHCb event classification and to the study of open many-body quantum systems, specifically to the computation of the entanglement of formation in critical many-body quantum systems at finite temperature, resulting in the generalization of the Calabrese-Cardy formula to open systems.
