We introduce an isometric restriction of the tensor-network ansatz that allows for highly efficient contraction of the network. We consider two concrete applications using this ansatz. First, we show that a matrix-product state representation of a 2D quantum state can be iteratively transformed into an isometric 2D tensor network. Second, we introduce a 2D version of the time-evolving block decimation algorithm (TEBD2) for approximating the ground state of a Hamiltonian as an isometric tensor network, which we demonstrate for the 2D transverse field Ising model.
