# Tensor network simulation of QED on infinite lattices: Learning from (1+1)d , and prospects for (2+1)d

@article{Zapp2017TensorNS, title={Tensor network simulation of QED on infinite lattices: Learning from (1+1)d , and prospects for (2+1)d}, author={Kai Zapp and Rom{\'a}n Or{\'u}s}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={95} }

The simulation of lattice gauge theories with tensor network (TN) methods is becoming increasingly fruitful. The vision is that such methods will, eventually, be used to simulate theories in $(3+1)$ dimensions in regimes difficult for other methods. So far, however, TN methods have mostly simulated lattice gauge theories in $(1+1)$ dimensions. The aim of this paper is to explore the simulation of quantum electrodynamics (QED) on infinite lattices with TNs, i.e., fermionic matter fields coupled…
