Abstract

I will present a pedagogical introduction on the application of tensor networks to the renormalization group. This program has resulted in a non-perturbative, real-space RG approach for lattice systems and the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA). The MERA is currently of interest in a wide range of research areas, from statistical mechanics to condensed matter, from quantum field theory to holography in quantum gravity.
