One could argue that the fields of quantum information science and complex network theory (a.k.a. complexity science) both address complexity, yet from opposite perspectives. Indeed, the former makes use of a complex system as a computational resource whereas the later generally studies (and often using computer simulations) the scaling, collective behavior and emergent properties of complex system(s).
Tensor networks are recognized as one of the most promising numerical tools to study quantum many body systems; representatives are the matrix product state (MPS), the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA), and the projected entangled-pair states (PEPS), and Density Matrix Renormalization Group(DMRG). By now, the concept covers various fields including material science, quantum chemistry, and lattice gauge theories, and it is desired to share ideas among these fields.
