Classical restrictions of MPS are Gibbsian

Michael Kastoryano

We show that the norm squared amplitudes with respect to a local orthonormal basis (the classical restriction) of finite quantum systems on one-dimensional lattices can be exponentially well approximated by Gibbs states of local Hamiltonians (i.e., are quasi-locally Gibbsian) if the classical conditional mutual information (CMI) of any connected tripartition of the lattice is rapidly decaying in the width of the middle region. For injective matrix product states, we moreover show that the classical CMI decays exponentially, whenever the collection of matrix product operators satisfies a ‘purity condition’; a notion previously established in the theory of random matrix products.
