@article{Phien2012InfiniteBC, title={Infinite boundary conditions for matrix product state calculations}, author={Ho N. Phien and Guifr{\'e} Vidal and I. P. McCulloch}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2012}, volume={86}, pages={245107} }

We propose a formalism to study dynamical properties of a quantum many-body system in the thermodynamic limit by studying a finite system with "infinite boundary conditions" where both finite-size effects and boundary effects have been eliminated. For one-dimensional systems, infinite boundary conditions are obtained by attaching two boundary sites to a finite system, where each of these two sites effectively represents a semi-infinite extension of the system. One can then use standard finite…
