Mathematical Physics & Probability

Speaker: Frank Verstraete, Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) of Vienna
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Wed, Mar 13 2013, 4:10PM

This talk will present an overview of entanglement-based methods for simulating strongly correlated quantum many-body systems, and emphasize the role of finitely correlated states / matrix product states and their continuous and higher dimensional analogues.
