In this talk we will start with a review of path-integraloptimization, which provides a useful description of non-unitary tensor networks for Euclidean path-integrals in CFTs. We will explain an emergence of AdS geometry in this method and an interpretation as a computational complexity. Next we will give its application to analytical calculations of entanglement of purification, which was quite recently reproduced by numerical calculations. Finally, we would like to present a derivation of a path-integral optimization method directly from the AdS/CFT.
