Renormalization of tensor networks using graph independent local truncations

I will describe our recent work from 1709.07460, where we introduce a new renormalization group algorithm for tensor networks. The algorithm is based on a novel understanding of local correlations in a tensor network, and a simple method to remove such correlations from any network. It performs comparably with the best competing algorithms on 2D/(1+1)D systems, but is significantly simpler to implement, and easier to generalize to different lattices and graphs, including to higher dimensions. I will begin the talk by discussing renormalization group methods for tensor networks in general, then describe our algorithm and its advantages, show some benchmark results, and finally comment on the status of implementing real-space renormalization for 3D tensor networks.
