An infinite projected entangled-pair state (iPEPS) is a tensor network ansatz to represent 2D wave functions directly in the thermodynamic limit, which in the past decade has become a powerful tool for the study of strongly correlated systems. In this talk I give an overview of recent developments beyond the usual 2D ground state calculations, including simulations at finite temperature, low-energy excitations, and extensions to 3D and layered systems. I will show how these tools helped us to understand the rich and intriguing physics of the quantum material SrCu2(BO3)2 under pressure and in a magnetic field, which is effectively described by the Shastry-Sutherland model.
