The following is a certainly incomple list of papers and theses which may be helpful in understanding bits and pieces of the toolkit better. This list is not intended as a historical summary of the field but only intends to collect pedagogically useful papers which are relevant to specific implementations in the SyTen toolkit. Nevertheless, any addition to this list is very welcome, some topics are still missing completely!

In addition to the papers linked here, see also the folder documentation-input/relevant-slides for some slides of talks given at various points in time with relevance to the toolkit. documentation-input/relevant-papers contains freely available PDFs of some of the papers linked below.

Furthermore, for a collection of articles describing tensor network methods, you may also wish to have a look at

Symmetries in Tensor Networks

MPS, error estimates etc.

DMRG, also on cylinders and in 2D

Time evolution with MPS

Infinite projected entangled pair states (iPEPS)

Works using the toolkit
