DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Tobias Hartung (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron)\n"
Besides tensor networks\, quantum computations (QC) as well use a Hamilton
ian formulation to solve physical problems. Although QC are presently very
limited\, since only small number of qubits are available\, they have the
principal advantage that they straightforwardly scale to higher dimension
s. A standard tool in the QC approach are Variational Quantum Simulations
(VQS) which form a class of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms for solvin
g optimization problems. For example\, the objective may be to find the gr
ound state of a Hamiltonian by minimizing the energy. As such\, VQS use pa
rametric quantum circuit designs to generate a family of quantum states (e
.g.\, states obeying physical symmetries) and efficiently evaluate a cost
function for the given set of variational parameters (e.g.\, energy of the
current quantum state) on a quantum device. The optimization is then perf
ormed using a classical feedback loop based on the measurement outcomes of
the quantum device.\n\nIn the case of energy minimization\, the optimal p
arameter set therefore encodes the ground state corresponding to the given
Hamiltonian provided that the parametric quantum circuit is able to encod
e the ground state. Hence\, the design of parametric quantum circuits is s
ubject to two competing drivers. On one hand\, the set of states\, that ca
n be generated by the parametric quantum circuit\, has to be large enough
to contain the ground state. On the other hand\, the circuit should contai
n as few quantum gates as possible to minimize noise from the quantum devi
ce. In other words\, when designing a parametric quantum circuit we want t
o ensure that there are no redundant parameters.\n\nIn this talk\, I will
consider the parametric quantum circuit as a map from parameter space to t
he state space of the quantum device. Using this point of view\, the set o
f generated states forms a manifold. If the quantum circuit is free from r
edundant parameters\, then the number of parameters is precisely the dimen
sion of the manifold of states. This leads us to the notion of dimensional
expressivity analysis. I will discuss means of analyzing a given parametr
ic design in order to remove redundant parameters as well as any unwanted
symmetries (e.g.\, a gate whose only effect is a change in global phase).
Time permitting\, I may discuss the manifold of physical states as well si
nce this will allow us to decide whether or not a parametric quantum circu
it can express all physical states (thereby ensuring that the ground state
can be expressed as well)."\n\nhttps://events.perimeterinstitute.ca/event

iversal data of critical quantum spin chains. We show that puMPS and puMPS
Bloch states accurately capture the ground state and low-energy excited s
tates of critical quantum spin chains up to several hundreds of spins. Thi
s enables us to extract (i) scaling dimensions\, conformal spins of scalin
g operators\, (ii) spectral renormalization group flows between CFTs\, (ii
i) lattice realizations of scaling operators\, and operator product expans
ion coefficients\, (iv) emergent symmetries such as superconformal symmetr
y\, and (v) universal tripartite entanglement of the ground state\, includ
ing entanglement of purification and reflected entropy. We give examples h
ow each of these is achieved and discuss potential applications to open pr

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ignacio Cirac (Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optic
s)\nQuantum Cellular Automata are unitary maps that preserve locality and
respect causality. I will show that in one spatial dimension they correspo
nd to matrix product unitary operators\, and that one can classify them in
the presence of symmetries\, giving rise to phenomenon analogous to symme
try protection. I will then show that in higher dimensions\, they correspo
nd to other tensor networks that fulfill an extra condition and whose bond
dimension does not grow with the system size. As a result\, they satisfy
an area law for the entanglement entropy they can create. I will also defi
ne other classes of non-unitary maps\, the so-called quantum channels\, th
at either respect causality or preserve locality and show that\, whereas t
he latter obey an area law for the amount of quantum correlations they can
create\, as measured by the quantum mutual information\, the former may v
iolate it. Additionally\, neither of them can be expressed as tensor netwo
rks with a bond dimension that is independent of the system size.\n\nhttps

ions of the Dirac field in 1+1 dimensions. It evinces a non-trivial zero-t
emperature phase structure in the mass-interaction plane\, with gapless (c
ritical) and gapped (massive) phases separated by a Berezinskii-Kosterlitz
-Thousless-type transition. To investigate this phase structure\, we exami
ned the entanglement entropy\, the fermion bilinear condensate and two typ
es of correlation functions. We also show our preliminary results of the r
eal-time dynamics of the Thirring model\, using variational uniform MPS an
d time-dependent variational principle.\nCo-Authors:\nMari Carmen Banuls\,

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bianca Dittrich (Perimeter Institute)\nIn contrast t
o the 4D case\, there are well understood theories of quantum gravity f
or the 3D case. Indeed\, 3D general relativity constitutes a topological
field theory (of BF or equivalently Chern-Simons type) and can be quanti
zed as such. The resulting quantum theory of gravity offers many interest
ing lessons for the 4D case. \n\nIn this talk I will discuss the quantum t
heory which results from quantizing 3D gravity as a topological field theo
ry. This will also allow a derivation of a holographic boundary theory\, t
ogether with a geometric interpretation of the boundary observables. \n\nT
he resulting structures can be interpreted in terms of tensor networks\, w
hich provide states of the boundary theory. \nI will explain how a choice
of network structure and bond dimensions constitutes a complete gauge fixi
ng of the diffeomorphism symmetry in the gravitational bulk system. The t
heory provides a consistent set of rules for changing the gauge fixing and
with it the tensor network structure. This provides an example of how dif
feomorphism symmetry can be realized in a tensor network based framework.\
n\nI will close with some remarks on the 4D case and the challenges we fac
e there.\n\nhttps://events.perimeterinstitute.ca/event/2/contributions/36/

ographic complexity in the doubly holographic model to study quantum extre

or boundary subregions in the island phase. Exploiting the Fefferman-Graha
m expansion of the metric and other geometric quantities near the brane\,
we derive the leading contributions to the complexity and interpret these
in terms of the generalized volume of the island derived from the higher c
urvature action for the brane gravity. Motivated by these results\, we pro
pose a generalization of the CV proposal for higher curvature theories of
gravity. Further\, we provide two consistency checks of our proposal by st
udying Gauss-Bonnet gravity and f(R) gravity in the bulk.\n\nhttps://event

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Luca Dellantonio (University of Waterloo)\nIn this t
alk I will speak about the meeting point of two models that have raised in
terest in the community in the last years. From one side\, we looked at me
asurement-based quantum computing (MBQC)\, which is an alternative to circ
uit-based quantum computing. Instead of modifying a state via gates\, MBQC
achieves the same result by measuring auxiliary qubits in a graph. From t
he other side\, we considered variational quantum eigensolvers (VQEs)\, th
at are one of the most successful tools for exploiting quantum computers i
n the NISQ era. In our work\, we present two measurement-based VQE schemes
. The first introduces a new approach for constructing variational familie
s. The second provides a translation of circuit-based to measurement-based
schemes. Both schemes offer problem-specific advantages in terms of the r
equired resources and coherence times. We apply them\, respectively\, to t
he Schwinger model and the two-dimensional Z(2) lattice gauge theory.\n\nh

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mari-Carmen Banuls (Max Planck Institute of Quantum
Optics)\nThe suitability of tensor network ansatzes for the description of
physically relevant states in one dimensional lattice gauge theories (LGT
) has been demonstrated in the last years by a large amount of systematic
studies\, including abelian and non-abelian LGTs\, and including scenarios
where traditional Monte Carlo approaches fail due to a sign problem. Whil
e this establishes a solid motivation to extend the program to higher dime
nsions\, a similar systematic study in two dimensions using PEPS requires
dealing with specific considerations. Besides a larger computational costs
associated to the higher spatial dimension\, the presence of plaquette te
rms in LGTs hinders the efficiency of the most up-to-date PEPS algorithms.
With a newly developed update strategy\, nevertheless\, such terms can be
treated by the most efficient techniques. We have used this method to per
form the first ab initio iPEPS study of a LGT in 2+1 dimensions: a Z3 inva
riant model\, for which we have determined the phase diagram.\n\nhttps://e
