When describing the low-energy physics of bosons in a double-well potential with a high barrier between the wells and sufficiently weak atom-atom interactions, one can to a good approximation ignore the high energy states and thereby obtain an effective two-mode model. Here, we show that the regime in which the two-mode model is valid can be extended by adding an on-site three-body interaction term and a three-body interaction-induced tunneling term to the two-mode Hamiltonian. These terms…

Spectral Structure and Many-Body Dynamics of Ultracold Bosons in a Double-Well
This work explores the dynamical behavior of the particles launched either at the single-particle ground state or saddle-point energy, in a time-independent potential, and characterization of the cross-over from diabatic to quasi-adiabatic evolution under finite-time switching of the potential barrier.
Three-body repulsive forces among identical bosons in one dimension
I consider non-relativistic bosons interacting via pairwise potentials with infinite scattering length and supporting no two-body bound states. To lowest order in effective field theory, these
Impact of the transverse direction on the many-body tunneling dynamics in a two-dimensional bosonic Josephson junction
The detailed mechanism of the tunneling process is unraveled by analyzing the evolution in time of the survival probability, depletion and fragmentation, and the many-particle position, momentum and angular-momentum expectation values and their variances.
Exact solution of the extended dimer Bose–Hubbard model with multi-body interactions
It is shown that the extended one-dimensional dimer Bose–Hubbard model with multi-body interactions can be solved exactly by using the algebraic Bethe ansatz mainly due to the site-permutation S2
Many-body quantum dynamics of an asymmetric bosonic Josephson junction
The out-of-equilibrium quantum dynamics of an interacting Bose gas trapped in a one-dimensional asymmetric double-well potential is studied by solving the many-body Schrödinger equation numerically
Longitudinal and transversal resonant tunneling of interacting bosons in a two-dimensional Josephson junction
It is shown that interaction between bosons makes resonant tunneling phenomena in two spatial dimensions profoundly rich, and these phenomena are analyzed in terms of the loss of coherence of the junction and development of fragmentation, and coupling between transverse and longitudinal degrees-of-freedom and excitations.
One-dimensional mixtures of several ultracold atoms: a review.
The recent advances on trapped Bose-Fermi mixtures are described, which allow for a theoretical combination of previous concepts, well illustrating the importance of quantum statistics and inter-particle interactions.
Control of tunneling in an atomtronic switching device
The precise control of quantum systems will play a major role in the realization of atomtronic devices. As in the case of electronic systems, a desirable property is the ability to implement

We calculate the renormalized effective two-, three- and four-body interactions for N neutral ultracold bosons in the ground state of an isotropic harmonic trap, assuming two-body interactions

We theoretically investigate the transport properties of cold bosonic atoms in a quasi-one-dimensional (1D) triple-well potential that consists of two large outer wells, which act as microscopic
Two fermions in a double well: exploring a fundamental building block of the Hubbard model.
By introducing repulsive (attractive) interparticle interactions, this work realized the two-particle analog of a Mott-insulating (charge-density-wave) state of a ground-state Fermi-Hubbard system.
