Author(s): Castelnovo, Claudio; Dykman, Mark I; Smelyanskiy, Vadim N; Moessner, Roderich; Pryadko, Leonid P | Abstract: Motivated by the existence of mobile low-energy excitations like domain walls in one dimension or gauge-charged fractionalized particles in higher dimensions, we compare quantum dynamics in the presence of weak Markovian dephasing for a particle hopping on a chain and for an Ising domain wall whose motion leaves behind a string of flipped spins. Exact solutions show that the…

- PhysicsPhysical review. B, Condensed matter

The exact expression for the sound velocity renormalization due to the p-electron-phonon coupling is derived, arriving at earlier heuristically, from the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger Hamiltonian with a boundary term added.

### Observation of the topological soliton state in the Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model

- PhysicsNature communications
- 2016

The Su–Schrieffer–Heeger model, which captures the most striking transport properties of the conductive organic polymer trans-polyacetylene, provides perhaps the most basic model system supporting topological excitations, and quantum simulation of this model and observation of the localized topological soliton state are reported on.

- PhysicsPhysical review. B, Condensed matter
- 1988

The CuO/sub 2/ planes in the high-temperature superconductors are described by a two-dimensional Hubbard model and a pair of holes, which naively should be quite mobile, are found to be extremely heavy due to a previously unappreciated frustration effect that impedes their motion.

A long-predicted hidden symmetry in spin ordering has been observed experimentally at temperatures near absolute zero and is in quantitative agreement with the so-called golden ratio predicted for the first two meson particles of the E8 spectrum.

Abstract A distinction is made between a mobility edge, which is a quantum-mechanical phenomenon predicted for non-crystalline conductors, and a percolation edge which occurs in classical theory as a…

- PhysicsNature

This work observes long-lived temporal correlations, experimentally identifies the phase boundary and finds that the temporal order is protected by strong interactions, which opens the door to exploring dynamical phases of matter and controlling interacting, disordered many-body systems.
