# Heisenberg

A Heisenberg Hamiltonian operator.

## Class Constructor

Constructs a new Heisenberg given a hilbert space.

Argument Type Description
hilbert netket.hilbert.Hilbert Hilbert space the operator acts on.

### Examples

Constructs a Heisenberg operator for a 1D system.

>>> import netket as nk
>>> g = nk.graph.Hypercube(length=20, n_dim=1, pbc=True)
>>> hi = nk.hilbert.Spin(s=0.5, total_sz=0, graph=g)
>>> op = nk.operator.Heisenberg(hilbert=hi)
>>> print(op.hilbert.size)
20



## Class Methods

### get_conn

Member function finding the connected elements of the Operator. Starting from a given visible state v, it finds all other visible states v’ such that the matrix element O(v,v’) is different from zero. In general there will be several different connected visible units satisfying this condition, and they are denoted here v’(k), for k=0,1…N_connected.

Argument Type Description
v numpy.ndarray[float64[m, 1]] A constant reference to the visible configuration.

### to_dense

Returns the dense matrix representation of the operator. Note that, in general, the size of the matrix is exponential in the number of quantum numbers, and this operation should thus only be performed for low-dimensional Hilbert spaces.

This method requires an indexable Hilbert space.

### to_sparse

Returns the sparse matrix representation of the operator. Note that, in general, the size of the matrix is exponential in the number of quantum numbers, and this operation should thus only be performed for low-dimensional Hilbert spaces or sufficiently sparse operators.

This method requires an indexable Hilbert space.
