Tensor Networks for Many-Body Physics

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Jan von Delft

My course on tensor networks has evolved throughout the years, starting in 2017.
Regarding lecture notes and videos, I recommend studying the most recent version, which is likely to be streamlined best.
Regarding tutorials: The tutorials from 2017 to 2021 supply 'ready-made' code, asking students to just fill some gaps and/or make minor additions. This allowed us to cover quite a lot of topics, but we had the impression that students did not learn to focus on details. So, we changed the tutorials starting 2022: these require students to program all codes essentially from scratch, albeit at the cost of covering less topics. The 2017-2021 materials use Matlab. Starting 2022, the tutorial materials are available in two versions, using Matlab or Julia.
