Workshop: Recent progress on tensor network methods, April 22-25, 2024

TUM Institute for Advanced Study, Munich

The aim of the workshop is to bring together condensed matter physicists, mathematicians and theoretical chemists to continue the exploration of this active and growing field of research and to stimulate further developments of tensor network methods.

The focus will be on innovative ideas for moving beyond current limits of quantum many body simulations despite the major challenges of high-dimensionality and accuracy. Topics include the interplay between modes, rank truncation and network topology, hybridization with other approaches, and parallelization. 


  • Thomas Barthel, Duke University
  • Gero Friesecke, Technical University of Munich
