Entanglement has become central for the characterization of quantum matter both in and out of equilibrium. In a dynamical context entanglement exhibits universal linear temporal growth in generic systems, which stems from the underlying linear light cones as they occur in planar geometries. Inhomogeneous spacetimes can lead, however, to strongly bent trajectories. While such bent trajectories crucially impact correlation spreading and therefore the light-cone structure, it has remained elusive…

Generalized-hydrodynamic approach to inhomogeneous quenches: correlations, entanglement and quantum effects
We give a pedagogical introduction to the generalized hydrodynamic approach to inhomogeneous quenches in integrable many-body quantum systems. We review recent applications of the theory, focusing in
Fine structure of heating in a quasiperiodically driven critical quantum system
We study the heating dynamics of a generic one dimensional critical system when driven quasiperiodically. Specifically, we consider a Fibonacci drive sequence comprising the Hamiltonian of uniform


Coarse-grained dynamics of operator and state entanglement
We give a detailed theory for the leading coarse-grained dynamics of entanglement entropy of states and of operators in generic short-range interacting quantum many-body systems. This includes
Quantum Fields in Curved Space

Emergent black hole dynamics in critical Floquet systems
While driven interacting quantum matter is generically subject to heating and scrambling, certain classes of systems evade this paradigm. We study such an exceptional class in periodically driven
Growth of mutual information in a quenched one-dimensional open quantum many-body system
We study the temporal evolution of the mutual information (MI) in a one-dimensional Kitaev chain, coupled to a fermionic Markovian bath, subsequent to a global quench of the chemical potential. In
Lattice Bisognano-Wichmann modular Hamiltonian in critical quantum spin chains
We carry out a comprehensive comparison between the exact modular Hamiltonian and the lattice version of the Bisognano-Wichmann (BW) one in one-dimensional critical quantum spin chains. As a warm-up,
Measuring von Neumann entanglement entropies without wave functions
We present a method to measure the von Neumann entanglement entropy of ground states of quantum many-body systems which does not require access to the system wave function. The technique is based on
