The fully frustrated ladder – a quasi-1D geometrically frustrated spin one half Heisenberg model – is non-integrable with local conserved quantities on rungs of the ladder, inducing the local fragmentation of the Hilbert space into sectors composed of singlets and triplets on rungs. We explore the far-from-equilibrium dynamics of this model through the entanglement entropy and out-of-time-ordered correlators (OTOC). The post-quench dynamics of the entanglement entropy is highly anomalous as it…

Anomalous hydrodynamics in a class of scarred frustration-free Hamiltonians
Atypical eigenstates in the form of quantum scars and fragmentation of Hilbert space due to conservation laws provide obstructions to thermalization in the absence of disorder. In certain models with
Quantum Information Scrambling in Quantum Many-body Scarred Systems
Quantum many-body scarred systems host special non-thermal eigenstates which support periodic revival dynamics and weakly break the ergodicity. In this paper, we study the quantum information
Hilbert Space Fragmentation and Commutant Algebras
We study the phenomenon of Hilbert space fragmentation in isolated Hamiltonian and Floquet quantum systems using the language of commutant algebras, the algebra of all operators that commute with

Local Hilbert Space Fragmentation and Out-of-Time-Ordered Crystals
Quantum many-body models with both Hilbert space fragmentation and non-stationarity have recently been identified. Hilbert space fragmentation does not immediately imply non-stationarity. However,
Quantum chaos and ensemble inequivalence of quantum long-range Ising chains
We use large-scale exact diagonalization to study the quantum Ising chain in a transverse field with long-range power-law interactions decaying with exponent α. We numerically study various probes


Disorder-Free Localization in an Interacting 2D Lattice Gauge Theory.
Nonergodic behavior in the quantum link model is demonstrated by obtaining a bound on the localization-delocalization transition through a classical correlated percolation problem implying a fragmentation of Hilbert space on the nonergodic side of the transition.
Nonthermalized dynamics of flat-band many-body localization
We find that a flat-band fermion system with interactions and without disorders exhibits nonthermalized ergodicity-breaking dynamics, an analog of many-body localization (MBL). In the previous works
Orthogonal Quantum Many-Body Scars.
This example provides new insights into the link between quantum ergodicity and many-body entanglement while opening new avenues for exotic nonequilibrium dynamics in strongly correlated multicomponent quantum systems.

Quantum many-body scars and weak breaking of ergodicity
Recent discovery of persistent revivals in quantum simulators based on Rydberg atoms have pointed to the existence of a new type of dynamical behavior that challenged the conventional paradigms of
Thermalization and Its Absence within Krylov Subspaces of a Constrained Hamiltonian
We study the quantum dynamics of a simple translation invariant, center-of-mass (CoM) preserving model of interacting fermions in one dimension (1D), which arises in multiple experimentally

Disorder-free localization and many-body quantum scars from magnetic frustration
Geometrical frustration has led to rich insights into condensed matter physics, especially as a mechansim to produce exotic low energy states of matter. Here we show that frustration provides a

Exact three-colored quantum scars from geometric frustration
Non-equilibrium properties of quantum materials present many intriguing properties, among them athermal behavior, which violates the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis. Such behavior has primarily
