Recently found spin-flip non-invariant (SFNI) conserved quantities play important roles in discussing nonequilibrium physics of the XXZ model. The representative examples are the generalized Gibbs ensemble (GGE) and the ballistic transport of the spin current. In spite of big progress in understanding nonequilibrium physics of integrable systems, the general framework to determine a minimal complete set of conserved quantities which describes the long-time steady state has not yet been found… 
Finite-temperature transport in one-dimensional quantum lattice models
The last decade has witnessed an impressive progress in the theoretical understanding of transport properties of clean, one-dimensional quantum lattice systems. Many physically relevant models in one


Quasilocal charges in integrable lattice systems
We review recent progress in understanding the notion of locality in integrable quantum lattice systems. The central concept concerns the so-called quasilocal conserved quantities, which go beyond
Nonequilibrium spin transport in integrable spin chains: Persistent currents and emergence of magnetic domains
We construct exact steady states of unitary nonequilibrium time evolution in the gapless XXZ spin-1/2 chain where integrability preserves ballistic spin transport at long times. We characterize the
Exact relaxation in a class of nonequilibrium quantum lattice systems.
This work rigorously proves that the evolving state locally relaxes to a steady state with maximum entropy constrained by second moments--thus maximizing the entanglement.
Complete Generalized Gibbs Ensembles in an Interacting Theory.
This work constructs a GGE which uniquely fixes the macrostate describing the stationary behavior after a general quantum quench of the spin-1/2 Heisenberg chain by explicitly constructing a generalized Gibbs ensemble constructed from their extensive number of conserved charges.
Exactly conserved quasilocal operators for the XXZ spin chain
We extend T Prosen's construction of quasilocal conserved quantities for the XXZ model (2011 Phys. Rev. Lett. 106 217206) to the case of periodic boundary conditions. These quasilocal operators stem
Relaxation in a completely integrable many-body quantum system: an ab initio study of the dynamics of the highly excited states of 1D lattice hard-core bosons.
The relaxation hypothesis is confirmed through an ab initio numerical investigation of the dynamics of hard-core bosons on a one-dimensional lattice, and a natural extension of the Gibbs ensemble to integrable systems results in a theory that is able to predict the mean values of physical observables after relaxation.
