Real-space renormalization approaches for quantum lattice systems generate certain hierarchical classes of states that are subsumed by the multiscale entanglement renormalization Ansatz (MERA). It is shown that, with the exception of one spatial dimension, MERA states are actually states with finite correlations, i.e., projected entangled pair states (PEPS) with a bond dimension independent of the system size. Hence, real-space renormalization generates states which can be encoded with local…

Scale-Invariant Continuous Entanglement Renormalization of a Chern Insulator.

It is demonstrated that the cMERA circuit can potentially be realized in existing analog quantum computers, i.e., an ultracold atomic Fermi gas in an optical lattice with light-induced spin-orbit coupling.

Renormalization group constructions of topological quantum liquids and beyond

We give a detailed physical argument for the area law for entanglement entropy in gapped phases of matter arising from local Hamiltonians. Our approach is based on renormalization group (RG) ideas

Topological Multipartite Entanglement in a Fermi Liquid

The replica method relates the universal behavior of the multipartite mutual information in the absence of interactions to the D + 1’th order equal-time density correlation function, which shows exhibits a universal behavior in the long wavelength limit proportional to χ F .

Review on novel methods for lattice gauge theories

A review of the status and perspectives of new avenues for the exploration of lattice gauge theories based on quantum information ideas, which include tensor network calculations, quantum simulations with different physical platforms and quantum computations, and constitute nowadays a vibrant research area.

Two related methods for reconstructing multi-scale entangled states from a small number of efficiently-implementable measurements and fast post-processing, which prevent the build-up of errors from both numerical and experimental imperfections are described.

Numerical simulations with the ground state of a 1D lattice at criticality show that the resulting coarse-grained sites require a Hilbert space dimension that does not grow with successive RG transformations, and calculations unveil that ground state entanglement in extended quantum systems is organized in layers corresponding to different length scales.

Statistics dependence of the entanglement entropy.

This work establishes scaling laws for entanglement in critical quasifree fermionic and bosonic lattice systems, without resorting to numerical means, and finds Lifshitz quantum phase transitions accompanied with a nonanalyticity in the prefactor of the leading order term.

It is proven that the presented scaling law holds whenever the Fermi surface is finite, and this is, in particular, true for all ground states of Hamiltonians with finite range interactions.

Area laws for the entanglement entropy - a review

Physical interactions in quantum many-body systems are typically local: Individual constituents interact mainly with their few nearest neighbors. This locality of interactions is inherited by a decay
