Dynamically Evolving Bond-Dimensions within the one-site Time-Dependent-Variational-Principle method for Matrix Product States: Towards efficient simulation of non-equilibrium open quantum dynamics

Abstract : Understanding the emergent system-bath correlations in non-Markovian and non-perturbative open systems is a theoretical challenge that has benefited greatly from the application of Matrix Product State (MPS) methods. Here, we propose an autonmously adapative variant of the one-site Time-Dependent-Variational-Principle (1TDVP) method for many-body MPS wave-functions in which the local bond-dimensions can evolve to capture growing entanglement 'on the fly'. We achieve this by efficiently examining the effect of increasing each MPS bond-dimension in advance of each dynamic timestep, resulting in an MPS that can dynamically and inhomogeneously restructure itself as the complexity of the dynamics grows across time and space. This naturally leads to more efficient simulations, oviates the need for multiple convergence runs, and, as we demonstrate, is ideally suited to the typical, finite-temperature 'impurity' problems that describe open quantum system connected to multiple environments.
