**Quantum mechanics is complex**

Dirac The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known … the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved. So: ideas in quantum chemistry. Well let’s start at the very beginning, which is to recognize that quantum mechanics is the foundation of chemistry, which was realized by Paul Dirac, when he wrote down his equation and concluded that the fundamental laws for all of chemistry were known. The only problem, as recognized by Dirac also, is that the direct solution of quantum mechanics appears too complicated. Why is this? Well, the fundamental object in quantum mechanics is the wavefunction, and this is a joint or simultaneous probability amplitude for all the electrons. n electron positions L spins L particle occupancies Exponential complexity to represent wavefunction

**This view of QM is depressing**

[The Schrodinger equation] cannot be solved accurately when the number of particles exceeds about 10. No computer existing, or that will ever exist, can break this barrier because it is a catastrophe of dimension ... Pines and Laughlin (2000) in general the many-electron wave function Ψ … for a system of N electrons is not a legitimate scientific concept [for large N] Kohn (Nobel lecture, 1998)

5
**illusion of complexity**

nature does not explore all possibilities Nature is local: ground-states have low entanglement

6
**Language for low entanglement states is tensor networks**

different tensor networks reflect geometry of entanglement Matrix Product State 1D entanglement for gapped systems (basis of DMRG - often used in quasi-2D/3D) MERA 1D/nD entanglement for gapless systems Tensor Product State (PEPS) nD entanglement for gapped systems

7
**Graphical language n1 n2 n3 Algebraic form Graphical form spin 1/2**

e.g. particles Algebraic form Graphical form n1 n2 n3 physical index General state thick line = single tensor

8
**Graphical language, cont’d**

Algebraic form Graphical form n1 n2 n3 General operator n1’ n2’ n3’

9
**Ex: overlap, expectation value**

10
**Low entanglement states**

What does it mean for a state to have low entanglement? Consider system with two parts, 1 and 2 No entanglement local measurements on separated system 1, system 2 can be done independently. Local realism (classical) Entangled state Low entanglement : small number of terms in the sum

11
**“bond” or “auxiliary” dimension**

Matrix product states first and last tensors have one fewer auxiliary index 1D structure of entanglement “bond” or “auxiliary” dimension “M” or “D” or “χ” amplitude is obtained as a product of matrices General state i2 n1 i1 n2 n3 MPS n1 n2 n3 =

12
MPS gauge MPS are not unique: defined up to gauge on the auxiliary indices = i j insert gauge matrices = =

13
Ex: MPS contraction Overlap “d” “M” Efficient computation: contract in the correct order! 1 2 3 “d” “M” MPS overlap: total cost

14
**= MPS from general state = =**

recall singular value decomposition (SVD) of matrix singular values orthogonality conditions i = = j i = singular values j orthogonality conditions

15
**MPS from general state, cont’d**

i Step 1 “n” “m” = j SVD = i 1 = j Step 2 = “m” “n” SVD = 2 3 = = 2 3 1

16
**Common canonical forms**

“Vidal” form 2 3 = 1 different canonical form: absorb singular values into the tensors all tensors contract to unit matrix from left left canonical 2 3 1 1 i j i = = 2 etc j 2 right canonical all tensors contract to unit matrix from right 2 3 i i 3 = 2 = etc 1 j j 3 2 mixed canonical around site 2 (DMRG form) 2 3 1 i j i 3 = 1 j 3

17
**Matrix product operators**

each tensor has a bra and ket physical index n1 n2 n3 i2 n1 i1 n2 n3 n1’ n2’ n3’ General operator = MPO n1’ n2’ n3’

18
**Typical MPO’s What is bond dimension as an MPO? L R**

joins pairs of operators on both sides MPO bond dimension = 5

19
**= = MPO acting on MPS M2 MPO M1 MPS MPS M1 x M2**

MPO on MPS leads to new MPS with product of bond dimensions

20
MPS compression: SVD many operations (e.g. MPOxMPS, MPS+MPS) increase bond dim. compression: best approximate MPS with smaller bond dimension. write MPS in Vidal gauge via SVD’s 2 3 1 1 2 3 truncate bonds with small singular values M1 singular values Each site is compressed independently of new information of other sites: “Local” update: non-optimal. 2 3 1 truncated M2 singular values

21
**MPS: variational compression**

solve minimization problem original (fixed) MPS new MPS 1 2 3 1 3 2

22
**= = Gradient algorithm x 2**

To minimize quantity, follow its gradient until it vanishes 1 2 3 1 3 = 2 2 linear in 1 3 2 1 3 2 = 2 x 2 2 quadratic in Gradient step 2

23
**Sweep algorithm (DMRG style)**

1 2 3 1 3 2 bilinear in 1 2 3 2 consider as vector 1 2 3 1 3 where 1 3 2 1 3 where

24
**Sweep algorithm cont’d**

Minimization performed site by site by solving 3 2 2 3 M b 1 2 3 M 1 3 b 1 3 1 2 3 use updated tensors from previous step M 1 2 b 1 2 1 2 3

25
**Sweep and mixed canonical form**

in mixed canonical form M 3 2 2 3 b 1 2 3 mixed canonical around site 1 change canonical form M 1 3 b 1 3 1 2 3 mixed canonical around site 2 note: updated singular values

26
**SVD vs. variational compression**

variational algorithms – optimization for each site depends on all other sites. Uses “full environment” SVD compression: “local update”. Not as robust, but cheap! MPS: full environment / local update same computational scaling, only differ by number of iterations. General tensor networks (e.g. PEPS): full environment may be expensive to compute or need further approximations.

27
**Energy optimization bilinear form: similar to compression problem**

commonly used algorithms DMRG: variational sweep with full environment imag. TEBD: local update, imag. time evolution + SVD compression

28
**DMRG energy minimization**

2 use mixed canonical form around site 2 1 3 2 1 3 2 unit matrix where 1 3 eigenvalue problem for each site, in mixed canonical form DMRG “superblock” Hamiltonian

29
**Time evolution real time evolution**

imaginary time evolution: replace i by 1. projects onto ground-state at long times.

30
**General time-evolution**

compress 2 3 1 2 3 1 repeat

31
**Short range H: Trotter form**

evolution on pairs of bonds

32
Even-odd evolution time evolution can be broken up into even and odd bonds

33
**Time-evolving block decimation**

even/odd evolution easy to combine with SVD compression: TEBD increase of bond dimension of unconnected bonds: SVD compression can be done independently on each bond. SVD

34
**Periodic and infinite MPS**

MPS easily extended to PBC and thermodynamic limit Finite MPS (OBC) 2 3 1 2 3 1 Periodic MPS 2 3 1 Infinite MPS

35
**Unit cell = 2 site infinite MPS**

Infinite TEBD local algorithms such as TEBD easy to extend to infinite MPS Unit cell = 2 site infinite MPS A B A B A B

36
**i-TEBD cont’d A B even bond evolution + compression updated**

not updated Step 1 Step 2 odd bond Repeat

37
Symmetries Given global symmetry group, local site basis can be labelled by irreps of group – quantum numbers U(1) – site basis labelled by integer n (particle number) n=0, 1, 2 etc... SU(2) symmetry – site basis labelled by j, m (spin quanta) Total state associated with good quantum numbers

38
MPS and symmetry bond indices can be labelled by same symmetry labels as physical sites e.g. particle number symmetry labelled by integer MPS: well defined Abelian symmetry, each tensor fulfils rule tensor with no arrows leaving gives total state quantum number Choice of convention:

41
**Questions What is the dimension of MPS (M1) + MPS (M2)?**

How would we graphically represent the DM of an MPS, (tracing out sites n3 to nL?) What is the dimension of the MPO of an electronic Hamiltonian with general quartic interactions? What happens when we use an MPS to represent a 2D system? What happens to the bond-dimension of an MPS as we evolve it in time? Do we expect the MPS to be compressible? How about for imaginary time evolution? How would we alter the discussion of symmetry for non-Abelian symmetry e.g. SU(2)?
