We generalize the recently introduced Density-Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG-X) [Khemani et al, PRL 2016] algorithm to obtain Floquet eigenstates of one-dimensional, periodically driven many-body localized systems. This generalization is made possible by the fact that the time-evolution operator for a period can be efficiently represented using a matrix-product operator. We first benchmark the method by comparing to exact diagonalization for small systems. We then obtain Floquet eigenstates for larger systems and show unambiguously that the characteristic area-law scaling remains robust. (Figure presented.).
