We study the logarithmic negativity and the moments of the partial transpose in the ground state of a two dimensional massless harmonic square lattice with nearest neighbour interactions for various configurations of adjacent domains. At leading order for large domains, the logarithmic negativity and the logarithm of the ratio between the generic moment of the partial transpose and the moment of the reduced density matrix at the same order satisfy an area law in terms of the length of the curve… 

Probing trihedral corner entanglement for Dirac fermions

We investigate the universal information contained in the Renyi entanglement entropies for a free massless Dirac fermion in three spatial dimensions. Using numerical calculations on the lattice, we

We derive the quasiparticle picture for the fermionic logarithmic negativity in a tight-binding chain subject to gain and loss dissipation. We focus on the dynamics after the quantum quench from the

Entanglement entropies of an interval in the free Schrödinger field theory on the half line

We study the entanglement entropies of an interval adjacent to the boundary of the half line for the free fermionic spinless Schrödinger field theory at finite density and zero temperature, with

Symmetry decomposition of negativity of massless free fermions

We consider the problem of symmetry decomposition of the entanglement negativity in free fermionic systems. Rather than performing the standard partial transpose, we use the partial time-reversal

Negativity spectrum in 1D gapped phases of matter

We investigate the spectrum of the partial transpose (negativity spectrum) of two adjacent regions in gapped one-dimensional models. We show that, in the limit of large regions, the negativity

A contour for the entanglement entropies in harmonic lattices

We construct a contour function for the entanglement entropies in generic harmonic lattices. In one spatial dimension, numerical analysis are performed by considering harmonic chains with either

Entanglement Negativity Spectrum of Random Mixed States: A Diagrammatic Approach

The entanglement properties of random pure states are relevant to a variety of problems ranging from chaotic quantum dynamics to black hole physics. The averaged bipartite entanglement entropy of

Boundary-corner entanglement for free bosons

In quantum field theories defined on a space-time with boundaries, the entanglement entropy exhibits subleading, boundary-induced corrections to the ubiquitous area law. At critical points described

Negativity spectrum in the random singlet phase

Entanglement features of the ground state of disordered quantum matter are often captured by an infinite randomness fixed point that, for a variety of models, is the random singlet phase. Although a



Entanglement-area law for general bosonic harmonic lattice systems (14 pages)

We demonstrate that the entropy of entanglement and the distillable entanglement of regions with respect to the rest of a general harmonic-lattice system in the ground or a thermal state scale at

Entanglement negativity in two-dimensional free lattice models

We study the scaling properties of the ground-state entanglement between finite subsystems of infinite two-dimensional free lattice models, as measured by the logarithmic negativity. For adjacent

Entanglement negativity via the replica trick: A quantum Monte Carlo approach

Motivated by recent developments in conformal field theory (CFT), we devise a Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) method to calculate the moments of the partially transposed reduced density matrix at finite

Negativity and topological order in the toric code

In this manuscript we study the behaviour of the entanglement measure dubbed negativity in the context of the toric code model. Using a method introduced recently by Calabrese, Cardy and Tonni [Phys.

Finite temperature entanglement negativity in conformal field theory

We consider the logarithmic negativity of a finite interval embedded in an infinite one dimensional system at finite temperature. We focus on conformal invariant systems and we show that the naive

Entanglement negativity in free-fermion systems: An overlap matrix approach

In this paper, we calculate the entanglement negativity in free-fermion systems by use of the overlap matrices. For a tripartite system, if the ground state can be factored into triples of modes, we

Entropy, entanglement, and area: analytical results for harmonic lattice systems.

The question of the relation between entanglement, entropy, and area for harmonic lattice Hamiltonians corresponding to discrete versions of real free Klein-Gordon fields is revisit and the tools of quantum information science may help in establishing results in quantum field theory that were previously less accessible.

Area laws for the entanglement entropy - a review

Physical interactions in quantum many-body systems are typically local: Individual constituents interact mainly with their few nearest neighbors. This locality of interactions is inherited by a decay

Thermodynamic singularities in the entanglement entropy at a two-dimensional quantum critical point

We study the bipartite entanglement entropy of the two-dimensional (2D) transverse-field Ising model in the thermodynamic limit using series expansion methods. Expansions are developed for the Renyi
