Delta and Diagonal ITensor
A diagonal ITensor is an ITensor with diagonal-sparse storage such that only its diagonal elements Tiii... are non-zero. (Diagonal elements mean elements obtained by setting each Index to the same value.)
Uses of diagonal ITensors include replacing one Index of an ITensor with another; tracing pairs of indices; and "tying" multiple indices into a single Index.
Diagonal ITensors can be constructed either by calling the
deltafunction returns a diagonal ITensor whose diagonal elements are all 1.0. This introduces extra efficiencies as no memory is actually allocated since all elements are known to be the same.
diagTensorfunction can be used to construct general diagonal ITensors with different elements along the diagonal.
diagTensor are defined in "itensor/itensor.h"; also
// // Replace T's i Index with another Index l // auto T1 = ITensor(i,j,k); T1 *= delta(i,l); // // Trace (sum over) a pair of indices // auto T2 = ITensor(i,j,prime(i)); T2 *= delta(i,prime(i)); // // Tie multiple indices together // auto T3 = ITensor(i,prime(i),j,prime(i,2)); T3 *= delta(i,prime(i),prime(i,2),prime(i,3));
delta(Index i1, Index i2, ...) -> ITensor
Given two or more indices, returns an ITensor having these indices and diagonal storage. All diagonal elements have the value 1.0.
diagTensor(Container C, Index i1, Index i2, ...) -> ITensor
Given a container C (can be any container type) and a set of indices, returns an ITensor with these indices whose diagonal elements are the entries of the container, starting from
The container must be as large as the minimum size of the indices.
