  1. Computational approaches for quantum many-body systems HGSFP Graduate Days SS2019 Martin Gärttner

  2. Why programming exercises? What I cannot create I do not understand. [Richard Feynman]

  3. Course overview Lecture 1: Introduction to many-body spin systems Quantum Isingmodel,Bloch sphere, tensor structure, exact diagonalization Lecture 2: Collective spin models LMG model, symmetry, semi-classical methods,Monte Carlo Lecture 3: Entanglement Mixed states, partial trace, Schmidt decomposition Lecture 4: Tensor network states Area laws, matrix product states,tensor contraction, AKLT model Lecture 5: DMRG and other variational approaches Energy minimization, PEPS and MERA, neural quantum states

  4. Learning goals After today you will be able to … • … explain how collective spins map to two-mode bosonic models. • … derive mean field equations for spin models. • … apply the semi-classical truncated Wigner method to simulate the dynamics of collective spins.
