- The continuum limit of tensor networks: a path integral representation

I will discuss a

path-integral representation of continuum tensor networks that extends the

continuous MPS class for 1-D quantum fields to arbitrary spatial dimensions

while encoding desirable symmetries. The physical states can be interpreted as

arising through a continuous measurement process by a lower dimensional virtual

field with Lorentz symmetry. The resultant physical states naturally obey

entropy area laws, with the expectation values of observables determined by the

dissipative dynamics of the boundary field. The class offers the prospect of

powerful new analytical and computational tools to describe the physics of

strongly interacting field systems.
