Anti-$\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric Qubit: Decoherence and Entanglement Entropy

  title={Anti-\$\mathcal\{PT\}\$-symmetric Qubit: Decoherence and Entanglement Entropy},
  author={Julia Cen and Avadh B Saxena},
  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
We investigate a two-level spin system based anti-parity-time (anti-$\mathcal{PT}$)-symmetric qubit and study its decoherence as well as entanglement entropy properties. We compare our findings with that of the corresponding $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric and Hermitian qubits. First we consider the time-dependent Dyson map to find the exact analytical dynamics for a general non-Hermitian qubit system coupled with a bath, then we specialize it to the case of the anti-$\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric qubit. We…

Quantized-Energy Equation for N-Level Atom in the Probability Representation of Quantum Mechanics
For Hermitian and non-Hermitian Hamiltonian matrices H, we present the Schr¨odinger equation for qudit (spin-j system, N-level atom) with the state vector |ψ〉 in a new form of the linear eigenvalue
Perturbative approach for strong and weakly coupled time-dependent for non-Hermitian quantum systems
We propose a perturbative approach to determine the time-dependent Dyson map and the metric operator associated with time-dependent non-Hermitian Hamiltonians. We apply the method to a pair of


PT -symmetric slowing down of decoherence
We investigate $\mathcal{P}\mathcal{T}$-symmetric quantum systems ultraweakly coupled to an environment. We find that such open systems evolve under $\mathcal{P}\mathcal{T}$-symmetric, purely
Observation of information flow in the anti-𝒫𝒯-symmetric system with nuclear spins
The recently theoretical and experimental researches on $${\mathcal{PT}}$$ PT -symmetric system have attracted unprecedented attention because of the various interesting features and potential
Theory of the phase transition in random unitary circuits with measurements
We present a theory of the entanglement transition tuned by measurement strength in qudit chains evolved by random unitary circuits and subject to either weak or random projective measurements. The
Duality quantum simulation of a generalized anti-PT-symmetric two-level system
In this work, quantum simulation of the evolution of a two-level quantum system with a generalized anti-PT(APT)-symmetric Hamiltonian in arbitrary phase is investigated theoretically. The evolution
Entanglement in Nonunitary Quantum Critical Spin Chains.
It is shown that the consideration of left and right eigenstates combined with appropriate definitions of the trace leads to a natural definition of Rényi entropies in a large variety of models, which allows us to distinguish the role of the central charge and effective central charge in rational minimal models of CFT, and to define an effectivecentral charge in other, less well-understood cases.
Eternal life of entropy in non-Hermitian quantum systems
We find a different effect for the behavior of von Neumann entropy. For this we derive the framework for describing von Neumann entropy in non-Hermitian quantum systems and then apply it to a simple
Energy observable for a quantum system with a dynamical Hilbert space and a global geometric extension of quantum theory
A non-Hermitian operator may serve as the Hamiltonian for a unitary quantum system, if we can modify the Hilbert space of state vectors of the system so that it turns into a Hermitian operator. If
Anti- PT symmetry in dissipatively coupled optical systems
We show that anti-$\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry can be realized in dissipatively coupled optical systems. Its emergence gives rise to spontaneous phase transitions for the guided and localized photonic
Mending the broken PT-regime via an explicit time-dependent Dyson map
Entanglement and spin squeezing in non-Hermitian phase transitions.
The non-Hermitian Lipkin-Meshkov-Glick model is considered and it is shown that its phase transition occurs with maximum multiparticle entanglement: There is full N-particle entanglements at the transition, in contrast to the Hermitian case.
