Multilayer wave functions: A recursive coupling of local excitations    [PDF]

A. Ramezanpour
Finding a succinct representation to describe the ground state of a disordered interacting system could be very helpful in understanding the interplay between the interactions that is manifested in a quantum phase transition. In this work we use some elementary states to construct by iteration an ansatz of multilayer wave functions, with different levels of entanglement, where in each step the higher-level wave function is represented by a superposition of the locally "excited states" obtained from the lower-level wave function. This allows us to write the Hamiltonian expectation in terms of some local functions of the variational parameters, and employ an efficient message-passing algorithm to find the optimal parameters. We obtain good estimations of the ground-state energy and the phase transition point for the transverse Ising model with a few layers of mean-field and symmetric tree states. The work is the first step towards the application of local and distributed message-passing algorithms in the study of structured variational problems in finite dimensions.
