Abstract
We review some recent advancements we have obtained in tensor network
algorithms and their application to the study of correlated matter. 
We present novel approaches to study abelian and non-abelian lattice
gauge theories, open many-body quantum systems and systems with
long-range interactions or periodic boundary conditions. 
These novel approaches allowed us to obtain results on 
a variety of phenomena hardly accessible before, 
such as the Kibble-Zurek mechanism in Wigner
crystals, the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of the Schwinger model 
and the phase diagram of the disordered Bose-Hubbard model.
