Add to Calendar

Organizers:

Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Institute, Garching), Frank Verstraete (University of Vienna)

This workshop will focus on tensor network (MPS, PEPS, MERA) based simulations of strongly correlated quantum many body systems, relation to area laws, quantum spin glasses, as well as related work in mathematics, quantum chemistry and quantum information theory.

Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop_qhc3 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address.)

Poster session:

This workshop will include a poster session on Wednesday, April 23, from 4–5:30 p.m. To participate in the poster session, you must first be registered for the workshop. The Simons Institute will provide a 30 inch x 40 inch board, an easel, and clips to attach the poster to the board; presenters must print and bring their own posters. To present a poster, email simonsevents [at] berkeley [dot] edu (subject: Poster%20Session%3A%20Workshop%20on%20Tensor%20Networks%20and%20Simulations) by Tuesday, April 15.
