[2002.02618] Finding Quantum Critical Points with Neural-Network Quantum Statescontact arXivarXiv Twitter
Finding the precise location of quantum critical points is of particular importance to characterise quantum many-body systems at zero temperature. However, quantum many-body systems are notoriously hard to study because the dimension of their Hilbert space increases exponentially with their size. Recently, machine learning tools known as neural-network quantum states have been shown to effectively and efficiently simulate quantum many-body systems. We present an approach to finding the quantum critical points of the quantum Ising model using neural-network quantum states, analytically constructed innate restricted Boltzmann machines, transfer learning and unsupervised learning. We validate the approach and evaluate its efficiency and effectiveness in comparison with other traditional approaches.
