The Multi-scale Entanglement Renormalization Ansatz (MERA) is a tensor network that provides an efficient way of variationally estimating the ground state of a critical quantum system. The network geometry resembles a discretization of spatial slices of an AdS spacetime and “geodesics” in the MERA reproduce the Ryu–Takayanagi formula for the entanglement entropy of a boundary region in terms of bulk properties. It has therefore been suggested that there could be an AdS/MERA correspondence…

Spacetime Symmetries and Conformal Data in the Continuous Multiscale Entanglement Renormalization Ansatz.
This Letter investigates the extent to which the cMERA state |Ψ^{Λ}⟩ with finite UV cutoff Λ can capture the spacetime symmetries of the ground state; and argues that these results should also apply to interacting theories.
Exploring the tensor networks/AdS correspondence
A bstractIn this paper we study the recently proposed tensor networks/AdS correspondence. We found that the Coxeter group is a useful tool to describe tensor networks in a negatively curved space.

In recent years, the high energy physics community has become increasingly interested in entanglement, especially since it seems that, in some sense, spacetime itself may arise from entanglement [1].
Integral geometry and holography
A bstractWe present a mathematical framework which underlies the connection between information theory and the bulk spacetime in the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence. A key concept is kinematic space: an

cMERA as Surface/State Correspondence in AdS/CFT
We present how the surface/state correspondence, conjectured in arXiv:1503.03542, works in the setup of AdS3/CFT2 by generalizing the formulation of cMERA. The boundary states in conformal field

Conformal Properties of Hyperinvariant Tensor Networks
Hyperinvariant tensor networks (hyMERA) were introduced as a way to combine the successes of perfect tensor networks (HaPPY) and the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA) in
Emergent geometry, thermal CFT and surface/state correspondence
Abstract We study a conjectured correspondence between any codimension-two convex surface and a quantum state (SS-duality for short). By applying thermofield double formalism to the SS-duality, we

Preskill et all suggest a highly interesting representation of holography in terms of quantum error correction codes The idea is that time= constant section of AdS, which is hyperbolic space allowing


Causal structure of the entanglement renormalization ansatz
We show that the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA) can be reformulated in terms of a causality constraint on discrete quantum dynamics. This causal structure is that of de Sitter
Entropy on a null surface for interacting quantum field theories and the Bousso bound
We study the vacuum-subtracted von Neumann entropy of a segment on a null plane. We argue that for interacting quantum field theories in more than two dimensions, this entropy has a simple expression
Geometric and renormalized entropy in conformal field theory
Abstract In statistical physics, useful notions of entropy are defined with respect to some coarse-graining procedure over a microscopic model. Here we consider some special problems that arise when
