dc.description.abstract
Tensor network algorithms (TNAs) represent one of the most recent developments in the field of numerical methods for the simulation of strongly-correlated many-body systems. Arising as a natural consequence of an improved understanding of the entanglement structures intrinsic to the ground-state manifolds of many-body Hilbert spaces, they correspond to algorithms exploiting entropic constraints expected to arise in various classes of many-body ground states. In this work we apply and develop TNAs for the simulation of various strongly-correlated lattice models. Concretely, we apply tensor network renormalization (TNR) to the study of the classical Blume-Capel model (BCM). We propose to exploit the RG features specific to TNR to obtain an indicator for the vicinity of (multi-)critical points. We show that in the case of the BCM it leads to a location of its tricritical point matching the accuracy of state-of-the-art Monte Carlo approaches. This allows us to characterize the underlying $c=7/10$ conformal field theory with an excellent accuracy. We then present a self-contained introduction to the most widely used techniques for the simulation of one- and two-dimensional quantum systems, where we cover matrix product states (MPS) and projected entangled-pair states (PEPS) in detail. We briefly discuss the multi-scale entanglement renormalization Ansatz (MERA). We apply infinite PEPS (iPEPS) to the simulation of the Kitaev-Heisenberg (KH) model, proposed as an effective low-energy theory for the so-called Iridate compounds of the form $\mathrm{A_2IrO_3}$ ($\mathrm{A=Na,Li}$). We show the ability of iPEPS to accurately encode the complex ground-state physics of Kitaev's honeycomb model. When considering the KH model we confirm the existence of all previously found phases, locate all phase transitions in the phase diagram, finding good agreement with previous studies, and provide estimates for the survival regions of the spin-liquid phases in the thermodynamic limit. We briefly discuss the nature of these transitions. We conclude this work with a study of various formulations of iPEPS on cylindrical geometries. We benchmark the proposed formulations by studying the transverse-field Ising model and find good performance for a subset of the formulations studied. We then carry out a comparison between iPEPS and iMPS methods for the Heisenberg and Hubbard models and find a range of cylinder widths over which both methods exhibit comparable performance. We find evidence for the potential of iPEPS simulations on cylinders and argue that our findings provide support for future studies employing both MPS and PEPS methods in conjunction.
