Dynamical l-bits in Stark many-body localization

  title={Dynamical l-bits in Stark many-body localization},
  author={Thivan Gunawardana and Berislav Buvca},
Stark many-body localized (SMBL) systems have been shown both numerically and experimentally to have Bloch many-body oscillations, quantum many-body scars, and fragmentation in the large field tilt limit. Likewise, they are believed to show localization similar to disordered MBL. We explain and analytically prove all these observations by rigorously showing the existence of novel algebraic structures that are quasi-exponentially stable in time, which we call dynamical l-bits. Moreover, we show…

Ergodicity and hydrodynamic projections in quantum spin lattices at all frequencies and wavelengths
Obtaining rigorous and general results about the quantum dynamics of extended many-body systems is a difficult task. Given the panoply of phenomena that can be observed and are being investigated, it
Algebraic Theory of Quantum Synchronization and Limit Cycles under Dissipation
Synchronization is a dynamical phenomenon found in complex systems ranging from biological systems to human society and is characterized by the constituents parts of a system locking their motion so


Observation of Stark many-body localization without disorder.
The results demonstrate the unexpected generality of MBL, with implications about the fundamental requirements for thermalization and with potential uses in engineering long-lived non-equilibrium quantum matter.
Quantum Many-Body Scars and Hilbert Space Fragmentation: A Review of Exact Results
The discovery of Quantum Many-Body Scars (QMBS) both in Rydberg atom simulators and in the Affleck-Kennedy-Lieb-Tasaki (AKLT) spin-1 chain model, have shown that a weak violation of ergodicity can
Self-induced entanglement resonance in a disordered Bose-Fermi mixture
Different regimes of entanglement growth under measurement have been demonstrated for quantum many-body systems, with an entangling phase for low measurement rates and a disentangling phase for high
Local Hilbert Space Fragmentation and Out-of-Time-Ordered Crystals
Quantum many-body models with both Hilbert space fragmentation and non-stationarity have recently been identified. Hilbert space fragmentation does not immediately imply non-stationarity. However,
Thermalization and Its Absence within Krylov Subspaces of a Constrained Hamiltonian
We study the quantum dynamics of a simple translation invariant, center-of-mass (CoM) preserving model of interacting fermions in one dimension (1D), which arises in multiple experimentally

Real-time evolution in the Hubbard model with infinite repulsion
We consider the real-time evolution of the Hubbard model in the limit of infinite coupling. In this limit the Hamiltonian of the system is mapped into a number-conserving quadratic form of spinless
Criticality and Rigidity of Dissipative Discrete Time Crystals in Solids
We present a prototypical model of dissipative discrete time crystals (DTC) in solids: a dissipative quantum Ising model periodically driven by a train of π-pulses. In this model, the interaction
Nonequilibrium quasistationary spin disordered state in the Kitaev-Heisenberg magnet $\alpha$-RuCl$_3$
Excitation by light pulses enables the manipulation of phases of quantum condensed matter. Here, we photoexcite high-energy holon-doublon pairs as a way to alter the magnetic free energy landscape of
Exact solution of a boundary time-crystal phase transition: time-translation symmetry breaking and non-Markovian dynamics of correlations
The breaking of the continuous time-translation symmetry manifests, in Markovian open quantum systems, through the emergence of non-stationary dynamical phases. Systems that display nonequilibrium
