It seems IQtensor only supports U(1) symmetry group, but what about finite groups, like Z_{q}?

Or doest it respect parity symmetry and or a combination of them? like U(1)Z_{q}Z_{2}.

Please let me know of any documentation.

Good question: yes since ITensor version 2.0 we have a fairly general quantum number system that can handle U(1) and Z_q type Abelian quantum numbers. The system can handle combinations as well: each QN object is an ordered collection of the various conserved quantum numbers.

Here is the documentation: http://itensor.org/docs.cgi?page=classes/qn

Let me know if you have any more specific questions about it.

Formatting Tips:
  • To format code, indent by four spaces
  • To format inline LaTeX, surround it by @@ on both sides
  • To format LaTeX on its own line, surround it by $$ above and below
  • For LaTeX, it may be necessary to backslash-escape underscore characters to obtain proper formatting. So for example writing \sum\_i to represent a sum over i.
