lat2mps_idx
(lat_idx)[source]¶ Translate lattice indices
(x_0, ..., x_{D1}, u)
to MPS index i. Parameters
lat_idx (array_like [.., dim+1]) – The last dimension corresponds to lattice indices
(x_0, ..., x_{D1}, u)
. All lattice indices should be positive and smaller than the corresponding entry inself.shape
. Exception: for “infinite” bc_MPS, an x_0 outside indicates shifts accross the boundary. Returns
i – MPS index/indices corresponding to lat_idx. Has the same shape as lat_idx without the last dimension.
 Return type
array_like

mps2lat_idx
(i)[source]¶ Translate MPS index i to lattice indices
(x_0, ..., x_{dim1}, u)
. Parameters
i (int  array_like of int) – MPS index/indices.
 Returns
lat_idx – First dimensions like i, last dimension has len dim`+1 and contains the lattice indices ``(x_0, …, x_{dim1}, u)` corresponding to i. For i accross the MPS unit cell and “infinite” bc_MPS, we shift x_0 accordingly.
 Return type
array

mps2lat_values
(A, axes=0, u=None)[source]¶ Reshape/reorder A to replace an MPS index by lattice indices.
 Parameters
A (ndarray) – Some values. Must have
A.shape[axes] = self.N_sites
if u isNone
, orA.shape[axes] = self.N_cells
if u is an int.axes ((iterable of) int) – chooses the axis which should be replaced.
u (
None
 int) – Optionally choose a subset of MPS indices present in the axes of A, namely the indices corresponding toself.unit_cell[u]
, as returned bymps_idx_fix_u()
. The resulting array will not have the additional dimension(s) of u.
 Returns
res_A – Reshaped and reordered verions of A. Such that an MPS index j is replaced by
res_A[..., self.order, ...] = A[..., np.arange(self.N_sites), ...]
 Return type
ndarray
Examples
Say you measure expection values of an onsite term for an MPS, which gives you an 1D array A, where A[i] is the expectation value of the site given by
self.mps2lat_idx(i)
. Then this function gives you the expectation values ordered by the lattice:>>> print(lat.shape, A.shape) (10, 3, 2) (60,) >>> A_res = lat.mps2lat_values(A) >>> A_res.shape (10, 3, 2) >>> A_res[lat.mps2lat_idx(5)] == A[5] True
If you have a correlation function
C[i, j]
, it gets just slightly more complicated:>>> print(lat.shape, C.shape) (10, 3, 2) (60, 60) >>> lat.mps2lat_values(C, axes=[0, 1]).shape (10, 3, 2, 10, 3, 2)
If the unit cell consists of different physical sites, an onsite operator might be defined only on one of the sites in the unit cell. Then you can use
mps_idx_fix_u()
to get the indices of sites it is defined on, measure the operator on these sites, and use the argument u of this function.>>> u = 0 >>> idx_subset = lat.mps_idx_fix_u(u) >>> A_u = A[idx_subset] >>> A_u_res = lat.mps2lat_values(A_u, u=u) >>> A_u_res.shape (10, 3) >>> np.all(A_res[:, :, u] == A_u_res[:, :]) True
Todo
make sure this function is used for expectation values…
