The search for novel entangled phases of matter has lead to the recent discovery of a new class of “entanglement transitions”, exemplified by random tensor networks and monitored quantum circuits. Most known examples can be understood as some classical ordering transitions in an underlying statistical mechanics model, where entanglement maps onto the free energy cost of inserting a domain wall. In this paper, we study the possibility of entanglement transitions driven by physics beyond such… Expand

Universal behavior beyond multifractality of wave-functions at measurement--induced phase transitions
We numerically investigate the structure of many-body wave functions of 1D random quantum circuits with local measurements employing the participation entropies. The leading term in system sizeExpand


Measurement-induced criticality in random quantum circuits
We investigate the critical behavior of the entanglement transition induced by projective measurements in (Haar) random unitary quantum circuits. Using a replica approach, we map the calculation ofExpand

Machine learning, one of today's most rapidly growing interdisciplinary fields, promises an unprecedented perspective for solving intricate quantum many-body problems. Understanding the physicalExpand
Unitary-projective entanglement dynamics
Starting from a state of low quantum entanglement, local unitary time evolution increases the entanglement of a quantum many-body system. In contrast, local projective measurements disentangleExpand
Entanglement transitions via space-time rotation of quantum circuits
Time evolution of quantum many-body systems typically leads to a state with maximal entanglement allowed by symmetries. Two distinct routes to impede entanglement growth are inducing localization viaExpand
Measurement-Induced Phase Transitions in the Dynamics of Entanglement
We define dynamical universality classes for many-body systems whose unitary evolution is punctuated by projective measurements. In cases where such measurements occur randomly at a finite rate $p$Expand

Measurement-Driven Phase Transition within a Volume-Law Entangled Phase
We identify a phase transition between two kinds of volume-law entangled phases in non-local but few-body unitary dynamics with local projective measurements. In one phase, a finite fraction of theExpand
Neural-Network Quantum States, String-Bond States, and Chiral Topological States
Neural-Network Quantum States have been recently introduced as an Ansatz for describing the wave function of quantum many-body systems. We show that there are strong connections betweenExpand
Measurement-driven entanglement transition in hybrid quantum circuits
Quantum information tends to spread out in interacting systems, leading to thermalization as characterized by the volume-law entropy of entanglement, while local measurements that extract classicalExpand

Many body quantum eigenstates of generic Hamiltonians at finite energy density typically satisfy "volume law" of entanglement entropy: the von Neumann entanglement entropy and the Renyi entropies forExpand
