# TwoSiteH¶

Inheritance Diagram

Methods

 TwoSiteH.__init__(env, i0[, combine, move_right]) Initialize self. Return the hermitian conjugate of self. Combine LP and RP with W to form LHeff and RHeff. Combine the legs of theta, such that it fits to how we combined the legs of self. TwoSiteH.matvec(theta) Apply the effective Hamiltonian to theta. Contract self to a matrix.

Class Attributes and Properties

class tenpy.algorithms.mps_sweeps.TwoSiteH(env, i0, combine=False, move_right=True)[source]

Class defining the two-site effective Hamiltonian for Lanczos.

The effective two-site Hamiltonian looks like this:

|        .---       ---.
|        |    |   |    |
|       LP----W0--W1---RP
|        |    |   |    |
|        .---       ---.


If combine is True, we define LHeff and RHeff, which are the contractions of LP with W0, and RP with W1, respectively.

Parameters
• env (MPOEnvironment) – Environment for contraction <psi|H|psi>.

• i0 (int) – Index of the active site if length=1, or of the left-most active site if length>1.

• combine (bool) – Whether to combine legs into pipes. This combines the virtual and physical leg for the left site (when moving right) or right side (when moving left) into pipes. This reduces the overhead of calculating charge combinations in the contractions, but one matvec() is formally more expensive, $$O(2 d^3 \chi^3 D)$$.

• move_right (bool) – Whether the the sweep is moving right or left for the next update.

combine

Whether to combine legs into pipes. This combines the virtual and physical leg for the left site and right site into pipes. This reduces the overhead of calculating charge combinations in the contractions, but one matvec() is formally more expensive, $$O(2 d^3 \chi^3 D)$$.
