## Abstract

The finite-temperature phase diagram is obtained for an infinite honeycomb lattice with spin-1/2 Ising interaction J by using thermal-state fidelity and the von Neumann entropy based on the infinite projected entangled pair state algorithm with ancillas. The tensor network representation of the fidelity, which is defined as an overlap measurement between two thermal states, is presented for thermal states on the honeycomb lattice. We show that the fidelity per lattice site and the von Neumann entropy can capture the phase transition temperatures for an applied magnetic field, consistent with the transition temperatures obtained via the transverse magnetizations, which indicates that a continuous phase transition occurs in the system. In the temperature-magnetic field plane, the phase boundary for finite temperature is found to be well approximated by the functional form (kBTc)2+hc2/2=aJ2 with a single numerical fitting coefficient a=2.298(7), where Tc and hc are the critical temperature and field with Boltzmann constant kB. The critical temperature in the absence of magnetic field is estimated as kBTc/J=a≃1.516(2), compared with the exact result kBTc/J=1.51865. For the quantum state at zero temperature, this phase boundary function gives the critical field estimate hc/J=2a≃2.144(3), compared to the known value hc/J=2.13250(4) calculated from a cluster Monte Carlo approach.
