Tensor networks from kinematic space
Abstract
We point out that the MERA network for the ground state of a 1+1dimensional conformal field theory has the same structural features as kinematic space — the geometry of CFT intervals. In holographic theories kinematic space becomes identified with the space of bulk geodesics studied in integral geometry. We argue that in these settings MERA is best viewed as a discretization of the space of bulk geodesics rather than of the bulk geometry itself. As a test of this kinematic proposal, we compare the MERA representation of the thermofielddouble state with the space of geodesics in the twosided BTZ geometry, obtaining a detailed agreement which includes the entwinement sector. In conclusion, we discuss how the kinematic proposal can be extended to excited states by generalizing MERA to a broader class of compression networks.

A general framework for nonabelian symmetries is presented for matrixproduct and tensornetwork states in the presence of welldefined orthonormal local as well as effective basis sets. The two crucial ingredients, the ClebschGordan algebra for multiplet spaces as well as the WignerEckart theorem for operators, are accounted for in a natural, wellorganized, and computationally straightforward way. The unifying tensorrepresentation for quantum symmetry spaces, dubbed QSpace, is particularly suitable to deal with standard renormalization group algorithms such as the numerical renormalization group (NRG), the density matrix renormalization group (DMRG), or also more general tensor networks such as the multiscale entanglement renormalization ansatzmore »

From Rindler space to the electromagnetic energymomentum tensor of a Casimir apparatus in a weak gravitational field
This paper studies two perfectly conducting parallel plates in the weak gravitational field on the surface of the Earth. Since the appropriate line element, to first order in the constant gravity acceleration g, is precisely of the Rindler type, we can exploit the formalism for studying Feynman Green functions in Rindler spacetime. Our analysis does not reduce the electromagnetic potential to the transverse part before quantization. It is instead fully covariant and well suited for obtaining all components of the regularized and renormalized energymomentum tensor to arbitrary order in the gravity acceleration g. The general structure of the calculation ismore » 
Kinematic source parameters determined by timedependent momenttensor inversion and an analysis of teleseismic first motions
A waveforminversion technique was applied to the digitally recorded longperiod Pwaveform data from the Global Digital Seismograph Network for the May 2 earthquake. The solution was constrained to be purely deviatoric but not to be a double couple. The source depth was determined by finding a trial depth that minimized the misfit to the data. By allowing the elements of the moment tensor to be independent, arbitrary functions of time, a gross estimate of the sourcetime history of the rupture process was obtained. A moderately well constrained faultplane solution was also obtained by fitting the available longand shortperiod teleseismic firstmotionmore » 
THE PHOTOMETRIC AND KINEMATIC STRUCTURE OF FACEON DISK GALAXIES. III. KINEMATIC INCLINATIONS FROM H{alpha} VELOCITY FIELDS
Using the integral field unit DensePak on the WIYN 3.5 m telescope we have obtained H{alpha} velocity fields of 39 nearly faceon disks at echelle resolutions. Highquality, uniform kinematic data and a new modeling technique enabled us to derive accurate and precise kinematic inclinations with mean i{sub kin} = 23 DegreeSign for 90% of these galaxies. Modeling the kinematic data as single, inclined disks in circular rotation improves upon the traditional tiltedring method. We measure kinematic inclinations with a precision in sin i of 25% at 20 DegreeSign and 6% at 30 DegreeSign . Kinematic inclinations are consistent with photometricmore » 
Tensor spherical harmonics and tensor multipoles. II. Minkowski space
The bases of tensor spherical harmonics and of tensor multipoles discussed in the preceding paper are generalized in the Hilbert space of Minkowski tensor fields. The transformation properties of the tensor multipoles under Lorentz transformation lead to the notion of irreducible tensor multipoles. We show that the usual 4vector multipoles are themselves irreducible, and we build the irreducible tensor multipoles of the second order. We also give their relations with the symmetric tensor multipoles defined by Zerilli for application to the gravitational radiation. (AIP)
