Diffusion in generalized hydrodynamics and quasiparticle scattering

We extend beyond the Euler scales the hydrodynamic theory for quantum and classical integrable models developed in recent years, accounting for diffusive dynamics and local entropy production. We review how the diffusive scale can be reached via a gradient expansion of the expectation values of the conserved fields and how the coefficients of the expansion can be computed via integrated steady-state two-point correlation functions, emphasising that {\mathcal PT}𝒫T-symmetry can fully fix the…

Diffusive hydrodynamics of inhomogenous Hamiltonians
We derive a large-scale hydrodynamic equation, including diffusive and dissipative effects, for systems with generic static position-dependent driving forces coupling to local conserved quantities.
Diffusion and superdiffusion from hydrodynamic projection
Hydrodynamic projections, the projection onto conserved charges representing ballistic propagation of fluid waves, give exact transport results in many-body systems, such as the exact Drude weights.

Fluctuations in Ballistic Transport from Euler Hydrodynamics
We propose a general formalism, within large-deviation theory, giving access to the exact statistics of fluctuations of ballistically transported conserved quantities in homogeneous, stationary
Current Operators in Bethe Ansatz and Generalized Hydrodynamics: An Exact Quantum-Classical Correspondence
Generalized Hydrodynamics is a recent theory that describes large scale transport properties of one dimensional integrable models. It is built on the (typically infinitely many) local conservation
Generalized hydrodynamics, quasiparticle diffusion, and anomalous local relaxation in random integrable spin chains
We study the nonequilibrium dynamics of random spin chains that remain integrable (i.e., solvable via Bethe ansatz): because of correlations in the disorder, these systems escape localization and
Hydrodynamics of massless integrable RG flows and a non-equilibrium c-theorem
Abstract We study Euler scale hydrodynamics of massless integrable quantum field theories interpolating between two non-trivial renormalisation group fixed points after inhomogeneous quantum
Generalized hydrodynamics regime from the thermodynamic bootstrap program
Within the generalized hydrodynamics (GHD) formalism for quantum integrable models, it is possible to compute simple expressions for a number of correlation functions at the Eulerian scale.
Euler-scale dynamical fluctuations in non-equilibrium interacting integrable systems
We derive an exact formula for the scaled cumulant generating function of the time-integrated current associated to an arbitrary ballistically transported conserved charge. Our results rely on the

We obtain the exact generalized hydrodynamics for the integrable Toda system. The Toda system can be seen in a dual way, both as a gas and as a chain. In the gas point of view, using the elastic and


Hydrodynamic Diffusion in Integrable Systems.
It is shown that hydrodynamic diffusion is generically present in many-body, one-dimensional interacting quantum and classical integrable models, and extended to terms of Navier-Stokes type, which leads to positive entropy production and diffusive relaxation mechanisms.
Diffusion and Signatures of Localization in Stochastic Conformal Field Theory.
It is shown that a light-cone effect subsists in the presence of impurities although a momentum burst propagates transiently on a diffusive scale only, and the space-time scales at which nonequilibrium currents exist are described.
Emergent entropy production and hydrodynamics in quantum many-body systems.
This work finds the absence of nonhydrodynamic slow degrees of freedom, a nonlinear fluctuation-dissipation theorem, and the emergence of a (weakly interacting) kinetic theory for hydrodynamic modes near thermal equilibrium.
Ballistic transport in the one-dimensional Hubbard model: The hydrodynamic approach
We outline a general formalism of hydrodynamics for quantum systems with multiple particle species which undergo completely elastic scattering. In the thermodynamic limit, the complete kinematic data

Generalized hydrodynamics of classical integrable field theory: the sinh-Gordon model
Using generalized hydrodynamics (GHD), we develop the Euler hydrodynamics of classical integrable field theory. Classical field GHD is based on a known formalism for Gibbs ensembles of classical
Generalized global symmetries and dissipative magnetohydrodynamics
The conserved magnetic flux of U ( 1 ) electrodynamics coupled to matter in four dimensions is associated with a generalized global symmetry. We study the realization of such a symmetry at

Hydrodynamics of operator spreading and quasiparticle diffusion in interacting integrable systems
We address the hydrodynamics of operator spreading in interacting integrable lattice models. In these models, operators spread through the ballistic propagation of quasiparticles, with an operator
On classical integrability of the hydrodynamics of quantum integrable systems
Recently, a hydrodynamic description of local equilibrium dynamics in quantum integrable systems was discovered. In the diffusionless limit, this is equivalent to a certain 'Bethe–Boltzmann' kinetic
