We introduce a class of UV-regularized two-body interactions for fermions in $\mathbb{R}^d$ and prove a Lieb-Robinson estimate for the dynamics of this class of many-body systems. As a step toward this result, we also prove a propagation bound of Lieb-Robinson type for Schr\"odinger operators. We apply the propagation bound to prove the existence of infinite-volume dynamics as a strongly continuous group of automorphisms on the CAR algebra.

Maximal speed of quantum propagation

For Schroedinger equations with both time-independent and time-dependent Kato potentials, we give a simple proof of the maximal speed bound. The latter states that the probability to find the quantum

Maximal Speed of Propagation in Open Quantum Systems

. We prove a maximal velocity bound for the dynamics of Markovian open quantum systems. The dynamics are described by one-parameter semigroups of quantum channels satisfying the von Neumann-Lindblad


We prove maximal speed estimates for nonlinear quantum propagation in the context of the Hartree equation. More precisely, under some regularity and integrability assumptions on the pair

Maximal Speed for Macroscopic Particle Transport in the Bose-Hubbard Model.

The Lieb-Robinson bound asserts the existence of a maximal propagation speed for the quantum dynamics of lattice spin systems. Such general bounds are not available for most bosonic lattice gases due

On Lieb–Robinson Bounds for the Bose–Hubbard Model

We consider the dynamics of the Bose–Hubbard model on general lattices and prove a Lieb–Robinson bound for observables whose supports are separated by an initially almost particle-free region. We

We extend Araki’s well-known results on the equivalence of the KMS condition and the variational principle for equilibrium states of quantum lattice systems with short-range interactions, to a large



Lieb-Robinson bounds, the spectral flow, and stability of the spectral gap for lattice fermion systems

We prove Lieb-Robinson bounds for a general class of lattice fermion systems. By making use of a suitable conditional expectation onto subalgebras of the CAR algebra, we can apply the Lieb-Robinson

The Resolvent Algebra for Oscillating Lattice Systems: Dynamics, Ground and Equilibrium States

Within the C*-algebraic framework of the resolvent algebra for canonical quantum systems, the structure of oscillating lattice systems with bounded nearest neighbor interactions is studied in any

Lieb-Robinson bounds and the generation of correlations and topological quantum order.

The Lieb-Robinson bound states that local Hamiltonian evolution in nonrelativistic quantum mechanical theories gives rise to the notion of an effective light cone with exponentially decaying tails.

Lieb-Robinson Bounds for Multi-Commutators and Applications to Response Theory

We generalize to multi-commutators the usual Lieb-Robinson bounds for commutators. In the spirit of constructive QFT, this is done so as to allow the use of combinatorics of minimally connected

Quasi-locality bounds for quantum lattice systems. I. Lieb-Robinson bounds, quasi-local maps, and spectral flow automorphisms

Lieb-Robinson bounds show that the speed of propagation of information under the Heisenberg dynamics in a wide class of nonrelativistic quantum lattice systems is essentially bounded. We review works

Statistical mechanics of quantum spin systems. II

AbstractIn the first part of this paper we continue the general analysis of quantum spin systems. It is demonstrated, for a large class of interactions, that time-translations form a group of

Persistence of Exponential Decay and Spectral Gaps for Interacting Fermions

We consider systems of weakly interacting fermions on a lattice. The corresponding free fermionic system is assumed to have a ground state separated by a gap from the rest of the spectrum. We prove

Dynamics for QCD on an Infinite Lattice

We prove the existence of the dynamics automorphism group for Hamiltonian QCD on an infinite lattice in $${{\mathbb{R}}^3}$$R3, and this is done in a C*-algebraic context. The existence of ground
