We construct a tensor network representation of the partition function for the massless Schwinger model on a two dimensional lattice using staggered fermions. The tensor network representation allows us to include a topological term. Using a particular implementation of the tensor renormalization group (HOTRG) we calculate the phase diagram of the theory. For a range of values of the coupling to the topological term $\theta$ and the gauge coupling $\beta$ we compare with results from hybrid… 

Improved coarse-graining methods on two dimensional tensor networks including fermions

Tensor renormalization group study of three-dimensional SU(2) gauge theory

This method applies the tensor renormalization group with the initial tensors and optimize the variational parameters to three-dimensional pure SU(2) gauge theory and the result for the free energy agrees with the analytical results in weak and strong coupling regimes.

Schwinger model at finite temperature and density with beta VQE

We investigate a quantum gauge theory at finite temperature and density using a variational algorithm for near-term quantum devices. We adapt β -VQE to evaluate thermal and quantum expectation values

Toward tensor renormalization group study of three-dimensional non-Abelian gauge theory

This work proposes a method to represent the path integral over gauge fields as a tensor network and applies this method to three-dimensional pure SU(2) gauge theory, finding the result for the free energy agrees with the analytical results in weak and strong coupling regimes.

Tensor networks for High Energy Physics: contribution to Snowmass 2021

Tensor network methods are becoming increasingly important for high-energy physics, condensed matter physics and quantum information science (QIS). We discuss the impact of tensor network methods on

Tensor renormalization group and the volume independence in 2D U(N) and SU(N) gauge theories

Abstract The tensor renormalization group method is a promising approach to lattice field theories, which is free from the sign problem unlike standard Monte Carlo methods. One of the remaining

Tensor network approach to 2D Yang-Mills theories

The tensor renormalization group method is applied to this tensor network representation for SU(2) and SU(3), and it is shown that the singular value decomposition of a tensor has a group theoretic structure and can be associated with the character expansion.

Topological sampling through windings

We propose a modification of the Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) algorithm that overcomes the topological freezing of a two-dimensional U(1) gauge theory with and without fermion content. This algorithm

Lattice regularisation and entanglement structure of the Gross-Neveu model

Abstract We construct a Hamiltonian lattice regularisation of the N-flavour Gross-Neveu model that manifestly respects the full O(2N) symmetry, preventing the appearance of any unwanted marginal

Abstract We derive a general formula of the tensor network representation for d-dimensional lattice fermions with ultra-local interactions, including Wilson fermions, staggered fermions, and



Real Time Dynamics and Confinement in the Zn Schwinger-Weyl lattice model for 1+1 QED

A strong effect of confinement is observed, which acts by suppressing both spontaneous pair production and string breaking into quark/antiquark pairs, indicating that the system dynamics displays a number of out-of-equilibrium features.

Topological vacuum structure of the Schwinger model with matrix product states

We numerically study the single-flavor Schwinger model with a topological $\theta$-term, which is practically inaccessible by standard lattice Monte Carlo simulations due to the sign problem. By
