We present discrete methods for computing low-rank approximations of time-dependent tensors that are the solution of a differential equation. The approximation format can be Tucker, tensor trains, MPS or hierarchical tensors. We will consider two types of discrete integrators: projection methods based on quasi-optimal metric projection, and splitting methods based on inexact solutions of substeps. For both approaches we show numerically and theoretically that their behaviour is superior compared to standard methods applied to the so-called gauged equations. In particular, the error bounds are robust in the presence of small singular values of the tensor’s matricisations. Based on joint work with Emil Kieri, Christian Lubich, and Hanna Walach.
