Compute excited states with DMRG

Example code:

#include "itensor/all.h"

using namespace itensor;

int

    int N = 100;

    //
    // Initialize the site degrees of freedom.
    //

    //Transverse field
    Real h = 4.0;

    //
    // Use the AutoMPO feature to create the 
    // transverse field Ising model
    //
    // Factors of 4 and 2 are to rescale
    // spin operators into Pauli matrices
    //
    auto ampo = AutoMPO(sites);

    // calculation for each DMRG sweep. 
    //

    //

    // for having any overlap with these

    // psi1 having any overlap with psi0

    // Print the final energies reported by DMRG
    //
    printfln("\nGround State Energy = %.10f",en0);
    printfln("\nExcited State Energy = %.10f",en1);

    //
    // The expected gap of the transverse field Ising
    // model is given by Eg = 2*|h-1|
    //
    // (The DMRG gap will have finite-size corrections.)
    //
    printfln("\nDMRG energy gap = %.10f",en1-en0);
    printfln("\nTheoretical gap = %.10f",2*std::fabs(h-1));

    //
    // The overlap <psi0|psi1> should be very close to zero
    //
    printfln("\nOverlap <psi0|psi1> = %.2E",overlap(psi0,psi1));
