The theory of generalized hydrodynamics (GHD) was recently developed as a new tool for the study of inhomogeneous time evolution in many-body interacting systems with infinitely many conserved charges. In this Letter, we show that it supersedes the widely used conventional hydrodynamics (CHD) of one-dimensional Bose gases. We illustrate this by studying "nonlinear sound waves" emanating from initial density accumulations in the Lieb-Liniger model. We show that, at zero temperature and in the…

Generalized hydrodynamics of classical integrable field theory: the sinh-Gordon model
Using generalized hydrodynamics (GHD), we develop the Euler hydrodynamics of classical integrable field theory. Classical field GHD is based on a known formalism for Gibbs ensembles of classical

Bridging Effective Field Theories and Generalized Hydrodynamics
Generalized Hydrodynamics (GHD) has recently been devised as a method to solve the dynamics of integrable quantum many-body systems beyond the mean-field approximation. In its original form, a major

The semiclassical approach introduced by Sachdev and collaborators proved to be extremely successful in the study of quantum quenches in massive field theories, both in homogeneous and inhomogeneous
Hydrodynamic Diffusion in Integrable Systems.
It is shown that hydrodynamic diffusion is generically present in many-body, one-dimensional interacting quantum and classical integrable models, and extended to terms of Navier-Stokes type, which leads to positive entropy production and diffusive relaxation mechanisms.
Generalized hydrodynamics in strongly interacting 1D Bose gases
Results show that GHD can accurately describe the quantum dynamics of a 1D nearly integrable experimental system even when particle numbers are low and density changes are large and fast.

Generalized hydrodynamics (GHD) was proposed recently as a formulation of hydrodynamics for integrable systems, taking into account infinitely-many conservation laws. In this note we further develop

Inspired by recent results on the non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body quantum systems, we study the classical hard rod problem in one dimension with initial domain wall condition. Hard rods are an
Sudden expansion of a one-dimensional bose gas from power-law traps.
The stationary phase and local density approximations are used and it is shown that the long-time asymptotic density profile and the momentum distribution of the gas are determined by the initial distribution of Bethe rapidities and hence can be obtained from the solutions to the Lieb-Liniger equations in the thermodynamic limit.
