IrregularLattice
(regular_lattice, remove=None, add=None, add_unit_cell=[], add_positions=None)[source]¶ Bases:
tenpy.models.lattice.Lattice
A variant of a regular lattice, where we might have extra sites or sites missing.
Note
The lattice defines only the geometry of the sites, not the couplings; you can have positiondependent couplings/onsite terms despite having a regular lattice.
By adjusting the
order
and a few private attributes and methods, we can make functions likepossible_couplings()
work with a more “irregular” lattice structure, where some of the sites are missing and other sites added instead. Parameters
regular_lattice (
Lattice
) – The lattice this is based on.remove (2D array  None) – Each row is a lattice index
(x_0, ..., x_{dim1}, u)
of a site to be removed. IfNone
, don’t remove something.add (Tuple[2D array, list]  None) – Each row of the 2D array is a lattice index
(x_0, ..., x_{dim1}, u)
specifiying where a site is to be added; u is the index of the site within the finalunit_cell
of the irregular lattice. For each row of the 2D array, there is one entry in the list specifying where the site is inserted in the MPS; the values are compared to the MPS indices of the regular lattice and sorted into it, so “2.5” goes between what was site 2 and 3 in the regular lattice. An entry None indicates that the site should be inserted after the lattice site(x_0, ..., x_{dim1}, 1)
of the regular_lattice.add_unit_cell (list of
Site
) – Extra sites to be added to the unit cell.add_positions (iterable of 1D arrays) – For each extra site in add_unit_cell the position within the unit cell. Defaults to
np.zeros((len(add_unit_cell), dim))
.

only. Type
2D array  None
Examples
Let’s imagine that we have two different sites; for concreteness we can thing of a fermion site, which we represent with
'F'
, and a spin site'S'
. If you want to preserve charges, take a look atset_common_charges()
for the proper way to initialize the sites.You could now imagine that to have fermion chain with spins on the “bonds”. In the periodic/infinite case, you would simply define
>>> lat = Lattice([2], unit_cell=['F', 'S'], bc='periodic', bc_MPS='infinite') >>> lat.mps_sites() ['F', 'S', 'F', 'S']
For a finite system, you don’t want to terminate with a spin on the right, so you need to remove the very last site by specifying the lattice index
[L1, 1]
of that site:>>> L = 4 >>> reg_lat = Lattice([L], unit_cell=['F', 'S'], bc='open', bc_MPS='finite') >>> irr_lat = IrregularLattice(reg_lat, remove=[[L  1, 1]]) >>> irr_lat.mps_sites() ['F', 'S', 'F', 'S', 'F', 'S', 'F']
Another simple example would be to add a spin in the center of a fermion chain. In that case, we add another site to the unit cell and specify the lattice index as
[(L1)//2, 1]
(where the 1 is the index of'S'
in the unit cell['F', 'S']
of the irregular lattice). The None for the MPS index is equivalent to(L1)/2
in this case.>>> reg_lat = Lattice([L], unit_cell=['F']) >>> irr_lat = IrregularLattice(reg_lat, add=([[(L  1)//2, 1]], [None]), ... add_unit_cell=['S']) >>> irr_lat.mps_sites() ['F', 'F', 'S', 'F', 'F']

. Return type
array, shape (N, D+1)

property
order
¶ Defines an ordering of the lattice sites, thus mapping the lattice to a 1D chain.
Each row of the array contains the lattice indices for one site, the order of the rows thus specifies a path through the lattice, along which an MPS will wind through through the lattice.
You can visualize the order with
plot_order()
.

mps_idx_fix_u
(u=None)[source]¶ return an index array of MPS indices for which the site within the unit cell is u.

self.unit_cell[u]
. Parameters
u (None  int) – Selects a site of the unit cell.
None
(default) means all sites. Returns
mps_idx – MPS indices for which
self.site(i) is self.unit_cell[u]
. Ordered ascending. Return type

or"periodic"
, one entry for each direction of the lattice. Return type

property
dim
¶ The dimension of the lattice.

distance
(u1, u2, dx)[source]¶ Get the distance for a given coupling between two sites in the lattice.
The u1, u2, dx parameters are defined in analogy with
add_coupling()
, i.e., this function calculates the distance between a pair of operators added with add_coupling (using thebasis
andunit_cell_positions
of the lattice).Warning
This function ignores “wrapping” arround the cylinder in the case of periodic boundary conditions.
 Parameters
u1 (int) – Indices within the unit cell; the u1 and u2 of
add_coupling()
u2 (int) – Indices within the unit cell; the u1 and u2 of
add_coupling()
dx (array) – Length

[x, y, u1]
and[x + dx[0], y + dx[1], u2]

enlarge_mps_unit_cell
(factor=2)[source]¶ Repeat the unit cell for infinite MPS boundary conditions; in place.
 Parameters
factor (int) – The new number of sites in the MPS unit cell will be increased from N_sites to
factor*N_sites_per_ring
. Since MPS unit cells are repeated in the xdirection in our convetion, the lattice shape goes from(Lx, Ly, ..., Lu)
to(Lx*factor, Ly, ..., Lu)
.

find_coupling_pairs
(max_dx=3, cutoff=None, eps=1e10)[source]¶ Automatically find coupling pairs grouped by distances.
Given the
unit_cell_positions
andbasis
, the couplingpairs
of nearest_neighbors, next_nearest_neighbors etc at a given distance are basically fixed (although not uniquely, since we take out half of them to avoid doublecounting couplings in both directionsA_i B_j + B_i A_i
). This function iterates through all possible couplings up to a given cutoff distance and then determines the possiblepairs
at fixed distances (up to roundoff errors). Parameters
max_dx (int) – Maximal index for each index of dx to iterate over. You need large enough values to include every possible coupling up to the desired distance, but choosing it too large might make this function run for a long time.
cutoff (float) – Maximal distance (in the units in which
basis
andunit_cell_positions
is given).eps (float) – Tolerance up to which to distances are considered the same.
 Returns
coupling_pairs – Keys are distances of nearestneighbors, nextnearestneighbors etc. Values are
[(u1, u2, dx), ...]
as inpairs
. Return type

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 MPS indices along the specified axes are replaced by lattice indices, i.e., if MPS index j maps to lattice site (x0, x1, x2), then
res_A[..., x0, x1, x2, ...] = A[..., j, ...]
. 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[tuple(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

len(self.unit_cell) > 1
.
 Returns
res_A – Reshaped and reordered copy of A. Such that MPS indices along the specified axes are replaced by lattice indices, i.e., if MPS index j maps to lattice site (x0, x1, x2), then
