The aim of the school is to teach young PhD students the basics of tensor-product states as well as the most recent technical developments. This is particularly important given the increasing number of groups working on this quickly evolving topic. The lectures will be given by researchers who work actively both on the development and the application of tensor-product state based methods.

Topics include

  • Many-body entanglement
  • Matrix-product states (MPS)
  • Projected entangled pair states (PEPS)
  • Multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA)
  • Applications of MPS in condmat and AMO
