I am performing time evolution through fitApplyMPO, however, the process is very slow compared to the DMRG algorithm.
In an attempt to speed up the calculation, I have tried adding compile flags -march=native and -O2 when compiling my own program through CMake, but doing this actually slows down the whole program. The README mentions linking the options.mk file, but I don't know how to achieve this in CMake.
Which flags/setting should I use in my CMakeList in order for my program to utilize ITensor to its fullest?

Note, I have compiled ITensor with Intel MKL.

Thank you!

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.
