Nature of problem:
Solution of quantum many-body systems is generally a hard problem. The many-body Hilbert space grows exponentially with the system size which limits exact diagonalization results to only 20 - 40 spins, and the fermionic negative sign problem limits the Quantum Monte Carlo methods to a few special cases.

Solution method:
The matrix product states ansatz provides a controllable truncation of the Hilbert space which makes it currently the method of choice to investigate low-dimensional systems in condensed matter physics. Our implementation allows simulation of arbitrary one-dimensional and two-dimensional models and achieves performance competitive with the best codes in the community. We implement conservation of quantum numbers for generic Abelian symmetries.

Running time:
10s - 8h per sweep.
