Lattice Gauge Theories and String Dynamics in Rydberg Atom Quantum Simulators
Gauge theories are the cornerstone of our understanding of fundamental interactions among particles. Their properties are often probed in dynamical experiments, such as those performed at ion
Bridging entanglement dynamics and chaos in semiclassical systems
It is widely recognized that entanglement generation and dynamical chaos are intimately related in semiclassical models via the process of decoherence. In this paper, we propose a unifying framework
Origin of the slow growth of entanglement entropy in long-range interacting spin systems
Long-range interactions allow far-distance quantum correlations to build up very fast. Nevertheless, numerical simulations demonstrated a dramatic slowdown of entanglement entropy growth after a
Suppression of transport in nondisordered quantum spin chains due to confined excitations
The laws of thermodynamics require any initial macroscopic inhomogeneity in extended many-body systems to be smoothed out by the time evolution through the activation of transport processes. In
Impact of nonequilibrium fluctuations on prethermal dynamical phase transitions in long-range interacting spin chains
We study the nonequilibrium phase diagram and the dynamical phase transitions occurring during the prethermalization of nonintegrable quantum spin chains, subject to either quantum quenches or linear
Influence Matrix Approach to Many-Body Floquet Dynamics
In this work, we introduce an approach to study quantum many-body dynamics, inspired by the Feynman-Vernon influence functional. Focusing on a family of interacting, Floquet spin chains, we consider
Quasilocalized dynamics from confinement of quantum excitations
Confinement of excitations induces quasilocalized dynamics in disorder-free isolated quantum many-body systems in one spatial dimension. This occurrence is signaled by severe suppression of quantum
Energy diffusion in the ergodic phase of a many body localizable spin chain
The phenomenon of many-body localization in disordered quantum many-body systems occurs when all transport is suppressed despite the fact that the excitations of the system interact. In this work we
Quasilocalized excitations induced by long-range interactions in translationally invariant quantum spin chains
We show that long-range ferromagnetic interactions in quantum spin chains can induce spatial quasi-localization of topological magnetic defects, i.e., domain-walls, even in the absence of quenched
Chaotic Dynamical Ferromagnetic Phase Induced by Nonequilibrium Quantum Fluctuations.
It is argued that the robustness of a dynamical phase transition against quantum fluctuations is general, as it arises from the impact of quantum fluctuations on the mean-field out of equilibrium dynamics of any system which exhibits a broken discrete symmetry.
