Domain Walls in the Heisenberg-Ising Spin-1/2 Chain

  title={Domain Walls in the Heisenberg-Ising Spin-1/2 Chain},
  author={Axel Saenz and Craig A. Tracy and Harold Widom},
In this paper we obtain formulas for the distribution of the left-most up-spin in the HeisenbergIsing spin-1/2 chain with anisotropy parameter ∆, also known as the XXZ spin-1/2 chain, on the one-dimensional lattice Z with domain wall initial conditions. We use the Bethe Ansatz to solve the Schrödinger equation and a recent antisymmetrization identity of Cantini, Colomo, and Pronko [9] to simplify the marginal distribution of the left-most up-spin. In the ∆ = 0 case, the distribution F2 arises…

Exact time evolution formulae in the XXZ spin chain with domain wall initial state

We study the time evolution of the spin-1/2 XXZ chain initialized in a domain wall state, where all spins to the left of the origin are up, all spins to its right are down. The focus is on exact

Analytic solution of the domain-wall nonequilibrium stationary state

We consider the out-of-equilibrium dynamics generated by joining two domains with arbitrary opposite magnetizations. We study the stationary state which emerges by the unitary evolution via the

Return probability after a quench from a domain wall initial state in the spin-1/2 XXZ chain

We study the return probability and its imaginary (τ) time continuation after a quench from a domain wall initial state in the XXZ spin chain, focusing mainly on the region with anisotropy |Δ|<1. We

Free fermions at the edge of interacting systems

We study the edge behavior of inhomogeneous one-dimensional quantum systems, such as Lieb-Liniger models in traps or spin chains in spatially varying fields. For free systems these fall into several

A Fredholm Determinant Representation in ASEP

In previous work (Tracy and Widom in Commun. Math. Phys. 279:815–844, 2008) the authors found integral formulas for probabilities in the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integer

The Bethe Wavefunction

Michel Gaudin's book La fonction d'onde de Bethe is a uniquely influential masterpiece on exactly solvable models of quantum mechanics and statistical physics. Available in English for the first

We approximate the noisy Burgers equation by the single-step model, alias the asymmetric simple exclusion process. The generator of the corresponding master equation is identical to the ferromagnetic

Integral Formulas for the Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process

In this paper we obtain general integral formulas for probabilities in the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integer lattice $${\mathbb{Z}}$$ with nearest neighbor hopping rates p to

Phase structure of XX0 spin chain and nonintersecting Brownian motion

We study finite size and temperature XX0 Heisenberg spin chain in weak and strong coupling regimes. By using an elegant connection of the model to integrable combinatorics and probability, we explore
