Abstract

Tensor networks are powerful computational tools, widely used in condensed matter physics, and increasingly in high-energy physics, with promising applications to machine learning problems. Developed in collaboration with Google and X, we present TensorNetwork: a new software package that makes it easier to code tensor network algorithms and, by using a framework like TensorFlow as a backend, to accelerate computations using specialized hardware (GPUs, TPUs) and integrate tensor networks into machine-learning projects.
