4:30 pm:

The Density-matrix renormalization group is a powerful algorithm invented by Steven White in 1992, and it is nowadays the most efficient method for one-dimensional quantum many-body systems and has achieved unprecdented precision in the description of them.

I will talk about

(1) Introduction and the theory behind DMRG,

(2) DMRG algorithms,

(3) Why is DMRG successful: Entanglement entropy and DMRG,

(4) Matrix product state and DMRG(if time permits).
