Theory of dynamical phase transitions in collective quantum systems
We present a theory for the two kinds of dynamical quantum phase transitions, sometimes termed DPT-I and DPT-II, in collective many-body systems. Both are triggered by excited-state quantum phase
Dynamical quantum phase transitions in spin-$S$ $\mathrm{U}(1)$ quantum link models
Dynamical quantum phase transitions (DQPTs) are a powerful concept of probing far-from-equilibrium criticality in quantum many-body systems. With the strong ongoing experimental drive to
Dynamical and excited-state quantum phase transitions in collective systems
We study dynamical phase transitions (DPTs) in quantum many-body systems with infinite-range interaction, and present a theory connecting the two kinds of known DPTs (sometimes referred to as DPTs-I

Exploring dynamical phase transitions and prethermalization with quantum noise of excitations
(Received 5 September 2014; revised manuscript received 4 May 2015; published 26 May 2015) Dynamical phase transitions can occur in isolated quantum systems that are brought out of equilibrium by
Time-dependent mean field theory for quench dynamics in correlated electron systems.
A dynamical transition between small and large quantum quench regimes is found to occur at half-filling, in accordance with the analysis of Eckstein, Phys.
Direct Observation of Dynamical Quantum Phase Transitions in an Interacting Many-Body System.
This work investigates and measures dynamical quantum phase transitions in a string of ions simulating interacting transverse-field Ising models, and establishes a link between DQPTs and the dynamics of other quantities such as the magnetization.
Universal prethermal dynamics of Bose gases quenched to unitarity
Degenerate and thermal Bose gases, quenched so that the interparticle interactions are as strong as allowed by quantum mechanics, exhibit dynamics that can be expressed in terms of universal functions.
Observation of a transition between dynamical phases in a quantum degenerate Fermi gas
It is found that below a critical interaction strength, magnetization of an initially polarized fermionic gas decays quickly, while above the transition point, the magnetization becomes long-lived because of an energy gap that protects against dephasing by the inhomogeneous axial field.
