Gutzwiller-projected fermionic states can be efficiently implemented within quantum Monte Carlo calculations to define extremely accurate variational wave functions for Heisenberg models on frustrated two-dimensional lattices, not only for the ground state but also for low-energy excitations. The application of few Lanczos steps on top of these states further improves their accuracy, allowing calculations on large clusters. In addition, by computing both the energy and its variance, it is…

It is argued that automaton wave functions have high quantum state complexity, and evidence of a linear growth of design complexity in local quantum circuits is presented, consistent with conjectures from quantum information theory.


Projected-wave-function study of the spin-1/2 Heisenberg model on the Kagomé lattice.
A Gutzwiller projected-wave-function study for the spin-1/2 Heisenberg model on the Kagomé lattice indicates that a U(1)-Dirac spin-liquid state has the lowest energy, and it is shown that this state represents a quantum phase whose low-energy physics is governed by four flavors of two-component Dirac fermions coupled to a U (1) gauge field.
Spin-Liquid Ground State of the S = 1/2 Kagome Heisenberg Antiferromagnet
This work uses the density matrix renormalization group to perform accurate calculations of the ground state of the nearest-neighbor quantum spin S = 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the kagome lattice and provides strong evidence that, for the infinite two-dimensional system, the groundState of this model is a fully gapped spin liquid.
