Self-similar visualization and sequence analysis of many-body wavefunctions

<p>We present a pictorial representation of quantum many-body wavefunctions, in which a wavefunction characterizing a chain of n qudits is mapped to an image (and which we call <strong>Qubism</strong>).</p> <p>The main property of the plotting scheme is the recursivity: increasing the number of qubits reflects in an increase in the image resolution. Thus, the plots are typically fractal-like, at least for translationally invariant states.</p> <p>Many features of the wavefunction, such as magnetization, entanglement and criticality, are represented by visual properties of the images.<br><br>Presented on: <a href="http://qcmc2012.org/">http://qcmc2012.org/</a>, <a href="http://www.eccs2012.eu/">http://www.eccs2012.eu/</a>, <a href="http://www.uibk.ac.at/th-physik/qism2012/">http://www.uibk.ac.at/th-physik/qism2012/</a></p> <p><a href="http://bcove.me/gowb5w9v">Watch video abstract!</a></p>
