- Wavelets and MERA

Some of the key insights that led to the

development of DMRG stemmed from studying the behavior of real space RG for

single particle wavefunctions, a much simpler context than the many-particle

case of main interest. Similarly, one

can gain insight into MERA by studying wavelets. I will introduce basic wavelet theory and

show how one of the most well-known wavelets, a low order orthogonal wavelet of

Daubechies, can be realized as the fixed point of a specific MERA (in

single-particle direct-sum space).

Higher order wavelets and the conflict between compactness in real and

Fourier space may provide insight into generalized MERAs for many particle

systems.
