Systematic improvement of neural network quantum states using a Lanczos recursion

  title={Systematic improvement of neural network quantum states using a Lanczos recursion},
  author={Hongwei Chen and Douglas Hendry and Phillip Weinberg and Adrian E. Feiguin},
The quantum many-body problem lies at the center of the most important open challenges in condensed matter, quantum chemistry, atomic, nuclear, and high-energy physics. While quantum Monte Carlo, when applicable, remains the most powerful numerical technique capable of treating dozens or hundreds of degrees of freedom with high accuracy, it is restricted to models that are not afflicted by the infamous sign problem. A powerful alternative that has emerged in recent years is the use of neural…

Two-dimensional frustrated J1−J2 model studied with neural network quantum states

This paper uses a fully convolutional neural network model as a variational ansatz to study the frustrated spin-1/2 J1-J2 Heisenberg model on the square lattice and demonstrates that the resulting predictions for both ground-state energies and properties are competitive with, and often improve upon, existing state-of-the-art methods.
