Abstract
We introduce a generalised class of (symmetric) random tensor network states in the framework of group field theory. In this setting, we compute the Renyi entropy for a generic bipartite state via a mapping to the partition function of a topological 3D BF theory, realised as a simple interacting group field theory. The expectation value of the entanglement entropy is calculated by an expansion into stranded Feynman graphs and is shown to be captured by a RyuTakayanagi formula. For the simple case of a 3D BF theory, we can prove the linear corrections, given by a polynomial perturbation of the Gaussian measure, to be negligible for a broad class of networks.
