### Categorical Tensor Network States

Abstract:

We examine the use of the mathematics of category theory in the description
of quantum states by tensor networks. This approach enables the development of
a categorical framework allowing a solution to the quantum decomposition
problem. Specifically, given an n-body quantum state ψ, we present
a general method to factor ψ into a tensor network. Moreover, this
decomposition of ψ uses building blocks defined mathematically in
terms of purely diagrammatic laws. W...
