From 5 Feb. 2017 to 18 Feb. 2017, Workshop "Entanglement in Strongly Correlated Systems" , the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual, Benasque, Spain.
Tensor network is a new language for talking about many-body problems. Having emerged from quantum information description of simple wave functions, it is now regarded as an extremely precise method for computing partition functions of classical or quantum lattice models, a wave function describing novel quantum states, a new framework of real-space renormalization group, a representation manifesting hidden symmetries and orders, a cure to the notorious negative-sign problem, a systematic way of information compression, a computable representation of AdS/CFT correspondence, ...
The main objective of this workshop is to achieve a better understanding of tensor-network states and tensor-network methods in quantum many-body problems. Related physical systems and numerical methods will be also discussed.

ABSTRACT The SU(N) symmetric antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model with multicolumn representations on the two- dimensional square lattice is investigated by quantum Monte Carlo simulations. For the representation of a Young diagram with two columns, we confirm that a valence-bond solid (VBS) order appears as soon as the Néel order disappears at N = 10, indicating no intermediate phase. In the case of the representation with three columns, there is no evidence for either the Néel or the VBS ordering for N >= 15. This is actually consistent with the large-N theory, which predicts that the VBS state immediately follows the Néel state, because the expected spontaneous order is too weak to be detected.
