@article{Damanik2014OnAL, title={On Anomalous Lieb-Robinson Bounds for the Fibonacci XY Chain}, author={David Damanik and Marius Lemm and Milivoje Luki'c and William N. Yessen}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2014} }

We rigorously prove a new kind of anomalous (or sub-ballistic) Lieb-Robinson bound for the isotropic XY chain with Fibonacci external magnetic field at arbitrary coupling. It is anomalous in that the usual exponential decay in $x-vt$ is replaced by exponential decay in $x-vt^\alpha$ with $0<\alpha<1$. In fact, we can characterize the values of $\alpha$ for which such a bound holds as those exceeding $\alpha_u^+$, the upper transport exponent of the one-body Fibonacci Hamiltonian. Following the…
