Abstract

In the rst part of this talk I will give a brief introduction to the variational class of continuous
matrix product states (cMPS). Then I will present a time evolution algorithm for cMPS with periodic
boundary conditions. In the second part, I will explain how to apply this method to simulate
atomtronic circuits. In particular, I will show results for persistent currents in an interacting bose
gas rotating in a ring shaped trap in the presence of an arti cial U(1) gauge potential.
