A bstractTensor networks provide a natural framework for exploring holographic duality because they obey entanglement area laws. They have been used to construct explicit toy models realizing many of the interesting structural features of the AdS/CFT correspondence, including the non-uniqueness of bulk operator reconstruction in the boundary theory. In this article, we explore the holographic properties of networks of random tensors. We find that our models naturally incorporate many features… 

Holography and criticality in matchgate tensor networks

A versatile and efficient framework for studying Tensor networks, extending previous tools for Gaussian matchgate tensors in 1 + 1 dimensions and establishing a link between holographic quantum error–correcting codes and tensor networks is introduced.

Holographic duality between local Hamiltonians from random tensor networks

New HQECCs built from random stabilizer tensors are constructed that describe a duality between models encompassing local Hamiltonians whilst exactly obeying the Ryu-Takayanagi entropy formula for all boundary regions.

Holographic coherent states from random tensor networks

A bstractRandom tensor networks provide useful models that incorporate various important features of holographic duality. A tensor network is usually defined for a fixed graph geometry specified by

Building tensor networks for holographic states

Abstract We discuss a one-parameter family of states in two-dimensional holographic conformal field theories which are constructed via the Euclidean path integral of an effective theory on a family

Reflected entropy in random tensor networks

It is argued that the various distinct contributions to the reflected entanglement spectrum can be organized into approximate superselection sectors, resulting from an effective description of the canonically purified state as a superposition of distinct tensor network states.

Superposed Random Spin Tensor Networks and their Holographic Properties

We study criteria for and properties of boundary-to-boundary holography in a class of spin network states defined by analogy to projected entangled pair states (PEPS). In particular, we consider

A defect in holographic interpretations of tensor networks

The study of how tensor networks reproduce properties of static holographic space-times, which are not locally pure anti-de Sitter, is initiated, and a novel ansatz called rayed MERA that applies to a class of generalized interface CFTs is proposed.

Holographic entanglement negativity and replica symmetry breaking

Abstract Since the work of Ryu and Takayanagi, deep connections between quantum entanglement and spacetime geometry have been revealed. The negative eigenvalues of the partial transpose of a

We study criteria for and properties of boundary-to-boundary holography in a class of spin network states defined by analogy to tensor networks. In particular, we consider superposition of states

Beyond toy models: distilling tensor networks in full AdS/CFT

It is proved that the bond dimensions of the tensor network will match the areas of the corresponding bulk surfaces, and a no-go theorem is proved which shows that the bulk-to-boundary maps cannot all be isometries in a Tensor network with intersecting Ryu-Takayanagi surfaces.



Bidirectional holographic codes and sub-AdS locality

This article proposes a new class of tensor network models that subsume the earlier advances and incorporate additional features of holographic duality, including a holographic interpretation of all boundary states, not just those in a “code” subspace.

Constructing holographic spacetimes using entanglement renormalization

We elaborate on our earlier proposal connecting entanglement renormalization and holographic duality in which we argued that a tensor network can be reinterpreted as a kind of skeleton for an

Holographic quantum error-correcting codes: toy models for the bulk/boundary correspondence

That bulk logical operators can be represented on multiple boundary regions mimics the Rindlerwedge reconstruction of boundary operators from bulk operators, realizing explicitly the quantum error-correcting features of AdS/CFT recently proposed in [1].

It is shown that all Rényi entropies satisfy a similar area law in holographic theories and are given by the areas of dual cosmic branes, a one-parameter generalization of the minimal surface prescription for entanglement entropy.

Exact holographic mapping and emergent space-time geometry

In this paper, we propose an {\it exact holographic mapping} which is a unitary mapping from the Hilbert space of a lattice system in flat space (boundary) to that of another lattice system in one

The Entanglement Renyi Entropies of Disjoint Intervals in AdS/CFT

We study entanglement Renyi entropies (EREs) of 1+1 dimensional CFTs with classical gravity duals. Using the replica trick the EREs can be related to a partition function of n copies of the CFT glued

Emergent spacetime and holographic CFTs

The information theoretic interpretation of the length of a curve

A new task called constrained state merging is introduced, whereby the state of the boundary subregion must be transmitted using operations restricted in location and scale in a way determined by the geometry of the bulk curve.
