Many-body localization (MBL), characterized by the absence of thermalization and the violation of conventional thermodynamics, has elicited much interest both as a fundamental physical phenomenon and for practical applications in quantum information. A phenomenological model, which describes the system using a complete set of local integrals of motion (LIOMs), provides a powerful tool to understand MBL, but can be usually only computed approximately. Here we explicitly compute a complete set of…

We find that a flat-band fermion system with interactions and without disorders exhibits nonthermalized ergodicity-breaking dynamics, an analog of many-body localization (MBL). In the previous works…

An algorithm is developed that can find approximate binary ℓ bits in arbitrary dimensions by adaptively generating a basis of operators in which to represent the ™ bit and validates the evidence of MBL phenomenology in the other two- and three-dimensional models studied.

Dynamics and transport at the threshold of many-body localization
