Emergent quantum state designs and biunitarity in dual-unitary circuit dynamics

  title={Emergent quantum state designs and biunitarity in dual-unitary circuit dynamics},
  author={Pieter W. Claeys and Austen Lamacraft},
Recent works have investigated the emergence of a new kind of random matrix behaviour in unitary dynamics following a quantum quench. Starting from a time-evolved state, an ensemble of pure states supported on a small subsystem can be generated by performing projective measurements on the remainder of the system, leading to a projected ensemble. In chaotic quantum systems it was conjectured that such projected ensembles become indistinguishable from the uniform Haar-random ensemble and lead to…

Dynamical purification and the emergence of quantum state designs from the projected ensemble
Quantum thermalization in a many-body system is defined by the approach of local subsystems towards a universal form, describable as an ensemble of quantum states wherein observables acquire thermal
Growth of entanglement of generic states under dual-unitary dynamics
Dual-unitary circuits are a class of locally-interacting quantum many-body systems displaying unitary dynamics also when the roles of space and time are exchanged. These systems have recently emerged
Circuits of space-time quantum channels
Exact solutions in interacting many-body systems are scarce and very valuable since they provide crucial insights into the dynamics. This is true for both closed and open quantum systems. Recently
Construction and local equivalence of dual-unitary operators: from dynamical maps to quantum combinatorial designs
While quantum circuits built from two-particle dual-unitary (maximally entangled) operators serve as minimal models of typically nonintegrable many-body systems, the construction and characterization


Biunitary constructions in quantum information
We present an infinite number of construction schemes involving unitary error bases, Hadamard matrices, quantum Latin squares and controlled families, many of which have not previously been

Exact dynamics in dual-unitary quantum circuits
We consider the class of dual-unitary quantum circuits in 1 + 1 dimensions and introduce a notion of “solvable” matrix product states (MPSs), defined by a specific condition which allows us to tackle
Exact Correlation Functions for Dual-Unitary Lattice Models in 1+1 Dimensions.
It is shown that for this class of circuits, generically nonintegrable, one can compute explicitly all dynamical correlations of local observables and this result is exact, nonpertubative, and holds for any dimension d of the local Hilbert space.

Unitary circuits of finite depth and infinite width from quantum channels
It is shown that reduced density matrices at different spatial cuts are related by quantum channels acting on the ancilla space, which allows for efficient numerical evaluation of the entanglement spectrum and Renyi entropies and their spatial fluctuations at finite times in an infinite system.
