# Generalized-hydrodynamic approach to inhomogeneous quenches: correlations, entanglement and quantum effects

@article{Alba2021GeneralizedhydrodynamicAT, title={Generalized-hydrodynamic approach to inhomogeneous quenches: correlations, entanglement and quantum effects}, author={Vincenzo Alba and Bruno Bertini and Maurizio Fagotti and Lorenzo Piroli and Paola de Ruggiero}, journal={Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment}, year={2021}, volume={2021} }

We give a pedagogical introduction to the generalized hydrodynamic approach to inhomogeneous quenches in integrable many-body quantum systems. We review recent applications of the theory, focusing in particular on two classes of problems: bipartitioning protocols and trap quenches, which represent two prototypical examples of broken translational symmetry in either the system initial state or post-quench Hamiltonian. We report on exact results that have been obtained for generic time-dependent…
