Learn to Use ITensor

Evaluate a Function on Each Element of a Tensor

ITensors (and IQTensors) provide a method .visit(f). When you provide a function f, the visit method will loop over the tensor data and plug each element of the tensor into f.

Here are some examples:

Printing Each Element of a Tensor

auto T = ITensor(i,j,k);
randomize(T);

//Here doPrint is a "lambda" function
auto doPrint = [](Real x) { println(x); };

T.visit(doPrint);

Computing the Max Element of a Tensor

auto T = ITensor(i,j,k);
randomize(T);

Real maxEl = -1E12;
//getMax is a lambda function with a "capture"
auto getMax = [&maxEl](Real x) { if(x > maxEl) maxEl = x; };

T.visit(getMax);

Print(maxEl);
