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.
