PERIMETER INSTITUTE RECORDED SEMINAR ARCHIVE

Perimeter Institute Pedagogical Introduction: Tensor Networks and Geometry, the Renormalization Group and AdS/CFT
Speaker(s): Guifre Vidal
Abstract: One might be confused by the proliferation of tensor network states, such as MPS, PEPS, tree tensor networks [TTN], MERA, etc. What is the main difference between them? In this talk I will argue that the geometry of a tensor network determines several properties of the state that is being represented, such as the asymptotic scaling of correlations and of entanglement entropy. I will also describe the relation between the MERA and the Renormalization Group, and will review Brian Swingle
