Extreme-value distributions are studied in the context of a broad range of problems, from the equilibrium properties of low-temperature disordered systems to the occurrence of natural disasters. Our focus here is on the ground-state energy distribution of disordered many-body quantum systems. We derive an analytical expression that, upon tuning a parameter, reproduces with high accuracy the ground-state energy distribution of all the systems that we consider. For several models with short-and…

Weak ergodicity breaking from quantum many-body scars
The thermodynamic description of many-particle systems rests on the assumption of ergodicity, the ability of a system to explore all allowed configurations in the phase space. Recent studies on
Many-body localization, thermalization, and entanglement
Thermalizing quantum systems are conventionally described by statistical mechanics at equilibrium. However, not all systems fall into this category, with many body localization providing a generic
How Does a Locally Constrained Quantum System Localize?
TLDR
It is shown that full many-body localization (MBL) is stable at strong z-field disorder and a new mechanism of localization through resonance at strong transverse disorder is identified and identified.
Non-local propagation of correlations in quantum systems with long-range interactions
TLDR
This work applies a variable-range Ising spin chain Hamiltonian and aVariable-range XY spin chainHamiltonian to a far-from-equilibrium quantum many-body system and observes its time evolution, determining the spatial and time-dependent correlations, extracting the shape of the light cone and measuring the velocity with which correlations propagate through the system.
Quench dynamics in randomly generated extended quantum models
We analyze the thermalization properties and the validity of the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis in a generic class of quantum Hamiltonians where the quench parameter explicitly breaks a Z2
Exploring Localization in Nuclear Spin Chains.
TLDR
A novel correlation metric, capable of distinguishing MBL from AL in high-temperature spin systems, is presented and the use of this metric is demonstrated to detect localization in a natural solid-state spin system using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
