Abstract The density-matrix renormalization group method (DMRG) has established itself over the last decade as the leading method for the simulation of the statics and dynamics of one-dimensional strongly correlated quantum lattice systems. In the further development of the method, the realization that DMRG operates on a highly interesting class of quantum states, so-called matrix product states (MPS), has allowed a much deeper understanding of the inner structure of the DMRG method, its… Expand

Numerical results for Cr2 with a (28e, 76o) active space and 1,3-butadiene with an (22e, 82o)active space reveal that p-DMRG provides ground state energies of a similar quality to variational DMRG with very large bond dimensions but at a significantly lower computational cost, which suggests that the method will be an efficient tool for benchmark studies in the future.
