The 75th Okazaki Conference
Tensor Network States: Algorithms and Applications 2016

January 11th - 14th, 2016     Okazaki Conference Center (Aichi, Japan)

Venue

Okazaki Conference Center
(located near the Institute for Molecular Science (IMS))

Access Information.
Closest airport is Central Japan International Airport (NGO) (Nagoya) at 30 km distance from Nagoya city center.
The next Shinkansen station is Nagoya (JR). From there you can travel to your final destination Higashi-Okazaki by taking the Meitetsu line (!! not the JR line !!).

Aim

Tensor networks are recognized as one of the most promising numerical tools to study quantum many body systems; representatives are the matrix product state (MPS), the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA), and the projected entangled-pair states (PEPS), and Density Matrix Renormalization Group(DMRG). By now, the concept covers various fields including material science, quantum chemistry, and lattice gauge theories, and it is desired to share ideas among these fields.
This workshop will focus on the recent developments on tensor network based algorithms and applications. It will host the discussion of current problems and developments among the leading researchers, aiming to promote interactions between selected fields from statistical mechanics to condensed matter, from quantum chemistry to nano-technology and high energy physics.

Program (Final Version)

The session starts at January 11 morning and ends in the afternoon of January 14.
