How do I use this algorithm? What does that parameter do?

### Crash during calculation of <Sy>

Hi everyone, for some reason, I have been having a weird problem with my setup where I receive the following error, Process finished with exit code 139 (interrupted by signal 11: SIGSEGV),whenever I try to calculate <Sy> or <Sy_iSy_j> . Minimal example can be found below, basically the XXZ chain tutorial.

Code: Select all

import math
import tenpy
from tenpy.networks.mps import MPS
import numpy as np
from tenpy.algorithms import dmrg
import sys
from tenpy.models.lattice import Site,Chain
from tenpy.models.model import CouplingModel,NearestNeighborModel,MPOModel,CouplingMPOModel
from tenpy.linalg import np_conserved as npc
from tenpy.tools.params import asConfig
from tenpy.networks.site import SpinHalfSite
from tenpy.tools.fit import fit_with_sum_of_exp, sum_of_exp
np.set_printoptions(precision=8)
np.set_printoptions(suppress=True)
np.set_printoptions(threshold=sys.maxsize)

#The CouplingModel way of defining the model ####
class XXZChain(CouplingModel, NearestNeighborModel, MPOModel):
r"""Spin-1/2 XXZ chain with Sz conservation.

.. math ::
H = \sum_i \mathtt{Jxx}/2 (S^{+}_i S^{-}_{i+1} + S^{-}_i S^{+}_{i+1})
+ \mathtt{Jz} S^z_i S^z_{i+1} \\
- \sum_i \mathtt{hz} S^z_i

All parameters are collected in a single dictionary model_params, which
is turned into a :class:~tenpy.tools.params.Config object.

Parameters
----------
model_params : :class:~tenpy.tools.params.Config
Parameters for the model. See :cfg:config:XXZChain below.

Options
-------
.. cfg:config :: XXZChain
:include: CouplingMPOModel

L : int
Length of the chain.
Jxx, Jz, hz : float | array
Coupling as defined for the Hamiltonian above.
bc_MPS : {'finite' | 'infinte'}
MPS boundary conditions. Coupling boundary conditions are chosen appropriately.

### Re: Crash during calculation of <Sy>

I checked, and the code runs without issues on my machine.
I'd guess it's some incompatibility/issue with the BLAS code being called in the end.
First of all, try whether it works with export TENPY_OPTIMIZE=0, which forces TeNPy to not load the compiled Cython parts.

How did you install TeNPy? Did you compile it yourself or use pip/conda?

I used conda to install TenPy, I will try your suggestion.

### Re: Crash during calculation of <Sy>

Thank you very much for your help. It was indeed about BLAS and I think there were some clashes with MKL during the run as well. I created a separate env for tenpy from scratch, everything works as expected.
