# Entanglement links and the quasiparticle picture

@inproceedings{Santalla2022EntanglementLA, title={Entanglement links and the quasiparticle picture}, author={Silvia N. Santalla and Giovanni Ram'irez and Sudipto Singha Roy and Germ{\'a}n Sierra and Javier Rodr'iguez-Laguna}, year={2022} }

The time evolution of a quantum state with short-range correlations after a quench to a 1D critical Hamiltonian can be understood using the quasi-particle picture , which states that local entanglement spreads as if it was carried by quasi-particles which separate at the speed of light. We extend the quasi-particle picture using the recently introduced link representation of entanglement, allowing us to apply it to initial states presenting long-range correlations. The entanglement links are…

Entanglement entropy obeys area law scaling for typical physical quantum systems. This may naively be argued to follow from the locality of interactions. We show that this is not the case by…
