In this paper, we describe a refined matrix product representation for many-body states that are invariant under SU(2) transformations and use it to extend the time-evolving block decimation (TEBD) algorithm to the simulation of time evolution in the presence of an SU(2) symmetry. The resulting algorithm, when tested in a critical quantum spin chain, proved to be more efficient than the standard TEBD.
