 Abstract
 Determining the universality class of a system exhibiting critical phenomena is one of the central problems in physics. There are several methods to determine this universality class from data. As methods to collapse plots onto scaling functions, polynomial regression, which is less accurate, and Gaussian process regression, which provides high accuracy and flexibility but is computationally expensive, have been proposed. In this paper, we propose a regression method using a neural network. The computational complexity is linear only in the number of data points. We demonstrate the proposed method for the finitesize scaling analysis of critical phenomena in the twodimensional Ising model and bond percolation problem to confirm the performance. This method efficiently obtains the critical values with accuracy in both cases.

 Abstract
 In the vicinity of the quantum critical point (QCP), thermodynamic properties diverge toward zero temperature governed by universal exponents. Although this fact is well known, how it is reflected in quantum dynamics has not been addressed. The QCP of the transverse Ising model on a triangular lattice is an ideal platform to test the issue, since it has an experimental realization, the dielectrics being realized in an organic dimer Mott insulator, κ−ET2X, where a quantum electric dipole represents the Ising degrees of freedom. We track the Glaubertype dynamics of the model by constructing a kinetic protocol based on the quantum Monte Carlo method. The dynamical susceptibility takes the form of the Debye function and shows a significant peak narrowing in approaching a QCP due to the divergence of the relaxation timescale. It explains the anomaly of dielectric constants observed in the organic materials, indicating that the material is very near the ferroelectric QCP. We disclose how the dynamical and other critical exponents develop near QCP beyond the simple field theory.

 Quantum Circuit Simulation by SGEMM Emulation on Tensor Cores and Automatic Precision Selection

 Abstract
 Quantum circuit simulation provides the foundation for the development of quantum algorithms and the verification of quantum supremacy. Among the various methods for quantum circuit simulation, tensor network contraction has been increasing in popularity due to its ability to simulate a larger number of qubits. During tensor contraction, the input tensors are reshaped to matrices and computed by a GEMM operation, where these GEMM operations could reach up to 90\% of the total calculation time. GEMM throughput can be improved by utilizing mixedprecision hardware such as Tensor Cores, but straightforward implementation results in insufficient fidelity for deep and large quantum circuits. Prior work has demonstrated that compensated summation with special care of the rounding mode can fully recover the FP32 precision of SGEMM even when using TF32 or FP16 Tensor Cores. The exponent range is a critical issue when applying such techniques to quantum circuit simulation. While TF32 supports almost the same exponent range as FP32, FP16 supports a much smaller exponent range. In this work, we use the exponent range statistics of input tensor elements to select which Tensor Cores we use for the GEMM. We evaluate our method on Random Circuit Sampling (RCS), including Sycamore's quantum circuit, and show that the throughput is 1.86 times higher at maximum while maintaining accuracy.

 Abstract
 Tree tensor network (TTN) provides an essential theoretical framework for the practical simulation of quantum manybody systems, where the network structure defined by the connectivity of the isometry tensors plays a crucial role in improving its approximation accuracy. In this paper, we propose a TTN algorithm that enables us to automatically optimize the network structure by local reconnections of isometries to suppress the bipartite entanglement entropy on their legs. The algorithm can be seamlessly implemented to such a conventional TTN approach as densitymatrix renormalization group. We apply the algorithm to the inhomogeneous antiferromagnetic Heisenberg spin chain having a hierarchical spatial distribution of the interactions. We then demonstrate that the entanglement structure embedded in the groundstate of the system can be efficiently visualized as a perfect binary tree in the optimized TTN. Possible improvements and applications of the algorithm are also discussed.

 Title
 Tensor renormalization group study of the nonequilibrium critical fixed point of the onedimensional contact process
 Abstract
 The steadystate of many stochastic systems is nonequilibrium. We studied the phase of nonequilibrium systems and the transition similar to equilibrium systems. In particular, the critical phase transition is interesting because we can define the nonequilibrium universality class. To confirm the existence of a nonequilibrium critical fixed point, we study the time evolution operator of onedimensional contact processes by using a tensor renormalization group technique. The time evolution operators converge to universal critical tensors in the tensor renormalization group flow. The spectrums of critical tensors are strongly anisotropic but share the intrinsic structure each for the universality class. The integer structure for the universality class of compactdirected percolation in the time direction is consistent with the exact spectrum structure of the diffusionannihilation process.
We will hold the oneline workshop, Tensor Network States: Algorithms and Applications (TNSAA) 20212022, from Jan. 17 to Jan. 21, 2022. The series of workshop, TNSAA, has been organized for the purposes of exchanging new developments, having discussions toward future studies, and providing intruductory talks for new generation of researchers about tensor networks.

 Title
 Universal spectrum structure on the nonequilibrium critical line of the onedimensional DomanyKinzel cellular automaton
 Abstract

The DomanyKinzel(DK) cellular automaton is a stochastic timeevolutional system with an absorbing state from which the system cannot escape and a canonical model for nonequilibrium critical phenomena[1]. We introduce the tensor network method as a new tool to study it. Estimating the entropy of the DK automaton with a matrix product state representation of distribution, we reported a new cusp of the Renyi entropy in the active phase of the DK cellular automaton[2]. We recently applied a tensor renormalization group method to transfer matrices at the nonequilibrium critical point of the DK cellular automaton, confirming a universal spectrum structure[3]. In this talk, we will report our results with a brief review of models and methods.

 Critical exponents in coupled phaseoscillator models on smallworld networks

 Abstract
 A coupled phaseoscillator model consists of phase oscillators, each of which has the natural frequency obeying a probability distribution and couples with other oscillators through a given periodic coupling function. This type of model is widely studied since it describes the synchronization transition, which emerges between the nonsynchronized state and partially synchronized states. The synchronization transition is characterized by several critical exponents, and we focus on the critical exponent defined by coupling strength dependence of the order parameter for revealing universality classes. In a typical interaction represented by the perfect graph, an infinite number of universality classes is yielded by dependency on the natural frequency distribution and the coupling function. Since the synchronization transition is also observed in a model on a smallworld network, whose number of links is proportional to the number of oscillators, a natural question is whether the infinite number of universality classes remains in smallworld networks irrespective of the order of links. Our numerical results suggest that the number of universality classes is reduced to one and the critical exponent is shared in the considered models having coupling functions up to second harmonics with unimodal and symmetric natural frequency distributions.

 Abstract
 A coupled phaseoscillator model consists of phaseoscillators, each of which has the natural frequency obeying a probability distribution and couples with other oscillators through a given periodic coupling function. This type of models is widely studied since it describes the synchronization transition, which emerges between the nonsynchronized state and partially synchronized states, and which is characterized by the critical exponents. Among them, we focus on the critical exponent defined by coupling strength dependence of the order parameter. The synchronization transition is not limited in the alltoall interaction, whose number of links is of O(N2) with N oscillators, and occurs in smallworld networks whose links are of O(N). In the alltoall interaction, values of the critical exponent depend on the natural frequency distribution and the coupling function, classified into an infinite number of universality classes. A natural question is in smallworld networks, whether the dependency remains irrespective of the order of links. To answer this question we numerically compute the critical exponent on smallworld networks by using the finitesize scaling method with coupling functions up to the second harmonics and with unimodal and symmetric natural frequency distributions. Our numerical results suggest that, for the continuous transition, the considered models share the critical exponent 1/2, and that they are collapsed into one universality class.

 Abstract
 We investigate the BerezinskiiKosterlitzThouless transitions for the squarelattice sixstate clock model with the cornertransfer matrix renormalization group (CTMRG). Scaling analyzes for effective correlation length, magnetization, and entanglement entropy with respect to the cutoff dimension m at the fixed point of CTMRG provide transition temperatures consistent with a variety of recent numerical studies. We also reveal that the fixed point spectrum of the corner transfer matrix in the critical intermediate phase of the sixstate clock model is characterized by the scaling dimension consistent with the c=1 boundary conformal field theory associated with the effective Z_6 dual sineGordon model.

 ABSTRACT
 We investigate the informational aspect of (1+1)dimensional directed percolation, a canonical model of a nonequilibrium continuous transition to a phase dominated by a single special state called the “absorbing” state. Using a tensor network scheme, we numerically calculate the time evolution of state probability distribution of directed percolation. We find a universal relaxation of Rényi entropy at the absorbing phase transition point as well as a new singularity in the active phase, slightly but distinctly away from the absorbing transition point. At the new singular point, the secondorder Rényi entropy has a clear cusp. There we also detect a singular behavior of “entanglement entropy,” defined by regarding the probability distribution as a wave function. The entanglement entropy vanishes below the singular point and stays finite above. We confirm that the absorbing state, though its occurrence is exponentially rare in the active phase, is responsible for these phenomena. This interpretation provides us with a unified understanding of time evolution of the Rényi entropy at the critical point as well as in the active phase.

ABSTRACT
We introduce an entanglement branching operator to split a composite entanglement flow in a tensor network which is a promising theoretical tool for manybody systems. We can optimize an entanglement branching operator by solving a minimization problem based on squeezing operators. The entanglement branching is a new useful operation to manipulate a tensor network. For example, finding a particular entanglement structure by an entanglement branching operator, we can improve a higherorder tensor renormalization group method to catch a proper renormalization flow in a tensor network space. This new method yields a new type of tensor network states. The second example is a manybody decomposition of a tensor by using an entanglement branching operator. We can use it for a perfect disentangling among tensors. Applying a manybody decomposition recursively, we conceptually derive projected entangled pair states from quantum states that satisfy the area law of entanglement entropy.

ABSTRACT
The SU(N) symmetric antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model with multicolumn representations on the two dimensional square lattice is investigated by quantum Monte Carlo simulations. For the representation of a Young diagram with two columns, we confirm that a valencebond solid (VBS) order appears as soon as the Néel order disappears at N = 10, indicating no intermediate phase. In the case of the representation with three columns, there is no evidence for either the Néel or the VBS ordering for N >= 15. This is actually consistent with the largeN theory, which predicts that the VBS state immediately follows the Néel state, because the expected spontaneous order is too weak to be detected.

ABSTRACT
Scaling analysis, in which one infers scaling exponents and a scaling function in a scaling law from given data, is a powerful tool for determining universal properties of critical phenomena in many fields of science. However, there are corrections to scaling in many cases, and then the inference problem becomes illposed by an uncontrollable irrelevant scaling variable. We propose a new kernel method based on Gaussian process regression to fix this problem generally. We test the performance of the new kernel method for some example cases. In all cases, when the precision of the example data increases, inference results of the new kernel method correctly converge. Because there is no limitation in the new kernel method for the scaling function even with corrections to scaling, unlike in the conventional method, the new kernel method can be widely applied to real data in critical phenomena.

ABSTRACT
We investigate thermal phase transitions to a valencebond solid phase in SU(N) Heisenberg models with four or sixbody interactions on a square or honeycomb lattice, respectively. In both cases, a thermal phase transition occurs that is accompanied by rotational symmetry breaking of the lattice. We perform quantum Monte Carlo calculations in order to clarify the critical properties of the models. The estimated critical exponents indicate that the universality classes of the square and honeycomblattice cases are identical to those of the classical XY model with a Z4 symmetrybreaking field and the threestate Potts model, respectively. In the squarelattice case, the thermal exponent, ν, monotonically increases as the system approaches the quantum critical point, while the values of the critical exponents, η and γ/ν, remain constant. From a finitesize scaling analysis, we find that the system exhibits weak universality, because the Z4 symmetrybreaking field is always marginal. In contrast, ν in the honeycomblattice case exhibits a constant value, even in the vicinity of the quantum critical point, because the Z3 field remains relevant in the SU(3) and SU(4) cases.

ABSTRACT
Using a generalized JordanWigner transformation combined with the defining representation of the SO(N) spin, we map the SO(N) bilinearbiquadratic(BLBQ) spin chain into the Ncolor bosonic particle model. We find that, when the JordanWigner transformation disentangles the symmetryprotected topological entanglement, this bosonic model becomes negativesign free in the context of quantum MonteCarlo simulation. For the SO(3) case, moreover, KennedyTasaki's transformation for the S=1 BLBQ chain, which is also a topological disentangler, derives the same bosonic model through the dimerR bases. We present temperature dependence of energy, entropy and string order parameter for the SO(N=3, 4, 5) BLBQ chains by the worldline MonteCarlo simulation for the Ncolor bosonic particle model.

ABSTRACT
Based on the worm algorithm in the pathintegral representation, we propose a general quantum Monte Carlo algorithm suitable for parallelizing on a distributedmemory computer by domain decomposition. Of particular importance is its application to large lattice systems of bosons and spins. A large number of worms are introduced and its population is controlled by a fictitious transverse field.

ABSTRACT
To examine the validity of the scenario of the deconfined critical phenomena, we carry out a quantum Monte Carlo simulation for the SU($N$) generalization of the Heisenberg model with fourbody and sixbody interactions. The quantum phase transition between the SU($N$) N\'eel and valencebond solid phases is characterized for $N=2,3,$ and $4$ on the square and honeycomb lattices. While finitesize scaling analysis works well up to the maximum lattice size ($L=256$) and indicates the continuous nature of the phase transition, a clear systematic change towards the firstorder transition is observed in the estimates of the critical exponent $y \equiv 1/\nu$ as the system size increases. We also confirm the relevance of a squared valencebond solid field $\Psi^2$ for the SU(3) model.

ABSTRACT
Using a generalized JordanWigner transformation combined with the defining representation of the SO(N) spin, we map the SO(N) bilinearbiquadratic(BLBQ) spin chain into the Ncolor bosonic particle model. We find that, when the JordanWigner transformation disentangles the symmetryprotected topological entanglement, this bosonic model becomes negativesign free in the context of quantum MonteCarlo simulation. For the SO(3) case, moreover, KennedyTasaki's transformation for the S=1 BLBQ chain, which is also a topological disentangler, derives the same bosonic model through the dimerR bases. We present temperature dependence of energy, entropy and string order parameter for the SO(N=3, 4, 5) BLBQ chains by the worldline MonteCarlo simulation for the Ncolor bosonic particle model.

ABSTRACT
Based on the worm algorithm in the pathintegral representation, we propose a general quantum Monte Carlo algorithm suitable for parallelizing on a distributedmemory computer by domain decomposition. Of particular importance is its application to large lattice systems of bosons and spins. A large number of worms are introduced and its population is controlled by a fictitious transverse field. For a benchmark, we study the sizedependence of the Bosecondensation order parameter of the hardcore BoseHubbard model with $L \times L \times \beta t =10240 \times 10240 \times 16$, using 3200 computing cores, which shows good parallelization efficiency.

ABSTRACT
We performed variational calculation based on the multiscale entanglemnt renormalization ansatz, for the antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on a Shastry Sutherland lattice (SSL). Our results show that at coupling ratio J'/J= 0.687(3), the system undergoes a quantum phase transition from the orthogonal dimer order to the plaquette valence bond solid phase, which then transits into the antiferromagnetic order above J'/J=0.75. In the presence of an external magnetic field, our calculations show clear evidences of various magnetic plateaux in systems with different coupling ratios range from 0.5 to 0.69. Our calculations are not limited to the small coupling ratio region, and we are able to show strong evidence of the presence of several supersolid phases, including ones above 1/2 and 1/3 plateaux. Such supersolid phases, which feature the coexistence of compressible superfluidity and crystalline long range order in triplet excitations, emerge at relatively large coupling ratio (J'/J>0.5). A schematic phase diagram of the SSL model in the presence of magnetic field is provided.

ABSTRACT
The ground state of an $S=1/2$ antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on a spatially anisotropic triangular lattice, which is an effective model of Mott insulators on a triangular layer of organic charge transfer salts or Cs2CuCl4, is numerically studied. We apply a numerical variational method by using a tensor network with entanglement renormalization, which improves the capability of describing a quantum state. Magnetic ground states are identified for 0.7 <= J2 / J1 <= 1 in the thermodynamic limit, where J1 and J2 denote the innerchain and interchain coupling constants, respectively. Except for the isotropic case (J1 = J2), the magnetic structure is spiral with an incommensurate wave vector that is different from the classical one. The quantum fluctuation weakens the effective coupling between chains, but the magnetic order remains in the thermodynamic limit. In addition, the incommensurate wave number is in good agreement with that of the series expansion method.
