On Lieb-Robinson Bounds for the Double Bracket Flow

  title={On Lieb-Robinson Bounds for the Double Bracket Flow},
  author={Matthew B. Hastings},
We consider the possibility of developing a Lieb-Robinson bound for the double bracket flow[3, 4]. This is a differential equation m ( ) = [[+, ( )], ( )] which may be used to diagonalize Hamiltonians. Here, + is fixed and (0) = . We argue (but do not prove) that ( ) need not converge to a limit for nonzero real in the infinite volume limit, even assuming several conditions on (0). However, we prove Lieb-Robinson bounds for all for the double-bracket flow for free fermion systems, but the range… 

Double-bracket flow quantum algorithm for diagonalization

A quantum algorithm for preparing eigenstates of quantum systems is presented which makes use of only forward and backward evolutions under a prescribed Hamiltonian and phase flips. It is based on the

Local integrals of motion and the stability of many-body localisation in disorder-free systems

Many-body localisation in disordered systems in one spatial dimension is typically understood in terms of the existence of an extensive number of (quasi)-local integrals of motion (LIOMs) which are



Improved Lieb-Robinson bound for many-body Hamiltonians with power-law interactions

A new family of Lieb-Robinson bounds for lattice spin systems with long-range interactions is proved, which allow us to prove that, at any fixed time, the spatial decay of quantum information follows arbitrarily closely to $1/r^{\alpha}$.

Lieb-Schultz-Mattis in higher dimensions

A generalization of the Lieb-Schultz-Mattis theorem to higher dimensional spin systems is shown. The physical motivation for the result is that such spin systems typically either have long-range

Locality and Digital Quantum Simulation of Power-Law Interactions

A new Lieb-Robinson bound is derived for systems with interactions that decay with distance r as a power law, 1/rα, which implies an effective light cone tighter than all previous bounds.

Complex-time singularity and locality estimates for quantum lattice systems

We present and prove a well-known locality bound for the complex-time dynamics of a general class of one-dimensional quantum spin systems. Then we discuss how one might hope to extend this same

The finite group velocity of quantum spin systems

AbstractIt is shown that if Φ is a finite range interaction of a quantum spin system,τtΦ the associated group of time translations, τx the group of space translations, andA, B local observables, then

Nearly linear light cones in long-range interacting quantum systems.

This work rules out the possibility that light cones of power-law interacting systems are bounded by a polynomial for α>2D and become linear as α→∞, suggesting that the velocity, as calculated from the slope of the light cone, may grow exponentially in time.

The author establishes a number of properties associated with the dynamical system H=(H,(H,N)), where H and N are symmetric n-by-n matrices and (A,B)=AB-BA. The most important of these come from the

Spectral Gap and Exponential Decay of Correlations

We study the relation between the spectral gap above the ground state and the decay of the correlations in the ground state in quantum spin and fermion systems with short-range interactions on a wide

The projected gradient methods for least squares matrix approximations with spectral constraints

The problems of computing least squares approximations for various types of real and symmetric matrices subject to spectral constraints share a common structure. This paper describes a general


A method to diagonalize or block-diagonalize Hamiltonians by means of an appropriate continuous unitary transformation is reviewed. We will outline (i) the procedure for the elimination of the
