Symmetry protected entanglement renormalization

We briefly describe how the classification [1] (based on the second group cohomology) of symmetry protected topological phases in one dimension can be reproduced from the viewpoint of renormalization group analysis by using "entanglement renormalization" [2]. [This part of the talk is based on the pre-print arXiv:1303.6716]
