Holography and criticality in matchgate tensor networks.

Jens Eisert, Alexander Jahn, Marek Gluza, Fernando Pastawski

The AdS/CFT correspondence conjectures a holographic duality between gravity in a bulk space and a critical quantum field theory on its boundary. Tensor networks have come to provide toy models to understand such bulk-boundary correspondences, shedding light on connections between geometry and entanglement. We introduce a versatile and efficient framework for studying tensor networks, extending previous tools for Gaussian matchgate tensors in 1+1 dimensions. Using regular bulk tilings, we show that the critical Ising theory can be realized on the boundary of both flat and hyperbolic bulk lattices. Within our framework, we also produce translation-invariant critical states by an efficiently contractible network dual to the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz. Furthermore, we explore the correlation structure of states emerging in holographic quantum error correction. We hope that our work will stimulate a comprehensive study of tensor-network models capturing bulk-boundary correspondences.
