Tensor Networks in a Nutshell

This seminar will be an introductory 'class' to Tensor Networks, so I will assume no previous knowledge on the subject. I aim to provide motivation for this powerful ansatz as well as some of its applications. I will introduce the main architectures (MPS, PEPS and MERA) and their characteristics. Throughout the seminar I will try to include part of the material I have produced for a 2017 PSI course taught by Guifre Vidal. 

If time permits I will also briefly introduce my research on the subject, which is on 2D tensor networks contraction and its accuracy convergence.
