Hi, I’m new to Julia and ITensor so please forgive me if I’m missing a very obvious error in my code.

I’m trying to compute the central charge of the tricritical Ising model at a critical point from the entanglement entropy using the following formula:

S_A = (c/3)\log{((L/\pi)\sin{(\pi l / L)}})

where c is the central charge, l is the subsystem size, and L is the system size. This is (1.1) from Pasquale Calabrese and John Cardy J. Stat. Mech. (2004)

Following “Confusion about the central charge extracted from Entanglement Entropy”, I wrote the following code:

```
using ITensors
using Plots
function chrd_dist(j, L)
return L/π * sin(π/L * j)
end
function entropy(psi)
psic = copy(psi)
N = length(psi)
ent = Vector{Float64}(undef, N-1)
for jj in 1:N-1
orthogonalize!(psic, jj)
U, S, V = svd(psic[jj], (linkind(psic, jj - 1), siteind(psic, jj)))
ent[jj] = 0.0
for n=1:dim(S,1)
p = S[n,n]^2
ent[jj] -= p * log(p)
println(jj)
end
end
return ent, map(b -> chrd_dist(b, N), 1:N-1)
end
g = 0.856
N = 100
sites = siteinds("S=1/2", N)
weight = abs(40 * g)
os = OpSum()
for j in 1:N
os += -2*2, "Sx", j
end
for j in 1:N-1
os += -2*4, "Sz", j, "Sz", j+1
end
for j in 1:N-2
os += 8*g, "Sx", j, "Sz", j+1, "Sz", j+2
end
for j in 1:N-2
os += 8*g, "Sz", j, "Sz", j+1, "Sx", j+2
end
os += -2*4, "Sz", N, "Sz", 1 # Periodic BC
os += 8*g, "Sx", N-1, "Sz", N, "Sz", 1
os += 8*g, "Sx", N, "Sz", 1, "Sz", 2
os += 8*g, "Sz", N-1, "Sz", N, "Sx", 1
os += 8*g, "Sz", N, "Sz", 1, "Sx", 2
# Specify the site indices explicitly to avoid indexing issues
H = MPO(os, sites, 1:N)
nsweeps = 5
maxdim = [10, 20, 100, 100, 200]
cutoff = [1E-10]
psi0 = randomMPS(sites, 10)
energy, psiof = dmrg(H, psi0; nsweeps, maxdim, cutoff)
entf, chrdf = entropy(psiof)
pl = plot(log.(chrdf), log.(entf), label=false, seriestype=:scatter)
alg = (x, δ, β) -> δ * x + β
c = 1/2
plot!(pl, x -> alg(x, c/3, -0.6), log.(chrdf), label="c = $c", legend=:topleft)
xlabel!(pl, "Log(d(l))")
ylabel!(pl, "S(l)")
title!("Central Charge")
display(pl)
```

But I keep getting the error:

```
MethodError: no method matching _indices(::Tuple{}, ::Nothing)
```

When I do not have a for loop that sums over all the possible bonds, I get no error. Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks!
