In this talk, I would like to explain the ansatz of isometric tensor network states (isoTNS) as candidate wavefunctions in two-dimensional condensed matter systems. I will explain how the isometric structure in 2D helps generalize many 1D tensor network algorithms, like the density matrix renormalization group and the time-evolution block decimation methods, to two dimensions. Both bosons and fermions; ground states and dynamics will be discussed. I will also explain why it is a friendly trial wavefunction in the context of variational Monte Carlo, where the sampling correlation time vanishes. I will also explain its relation to quantum error correction and how it provides an interesting playground of quantum information. If time permits, I would like to discuss some open questions about its representability of topological phases.
