We calculate the area, edge and corner Renyi entanglement entropies in the ground state of the transverse-field Ising model, on a simple-cubic lattice, by high-field and low-field series expansions. We find that while the area term is positive and the line term is negative as required by strong subadditivity, the corner contributions are positive in 3-dimensions. Analysis of the series suggests that the expansions converge up to the physical critical point from both sides. The leading area-law… Expand

Probing trihedral corner entanglement for Dirac fermions
We investigate the universal information contained in the Renyi entanglement entropies for a free massless Dirac fermion in three spatial dimensions. Using numerical calculations on the lattice, weExpand
Relating bulk to boundary entanglement
Quantum field theories have a rich structure in the presence of boundaries. We study the groundstates of conformal field theories (CFTs) and Lifshitz field theories in the presence of a boundaryExpand
Entanglement susceptibilities and universal geometric entanglement entropy
The entanglement entropy (EE) can measure the entanglement between a spatial subregion and its complement, which provides key information about quantum states. Here, rather than focusing on specificExpand
Universal divergence of the Rényi entropy of a thinly sliced torus at the Ising fixed point
The entanglement entropy of a quantum critical system can provide new universal numbers that depend on the geometry of the entangling bipartition. We calculate a universal number called $\kappa$,Expand
Generalizing the entanglement entropy of singular regions in conformal field theories
Abstract We study the structure of divergences and universal terms of the entanglement and Rényi entropies for singular regions. First, we show that for (3 + 1)-dimensional free conformal fieldExpand
Spin-wave approach for entanglement entropies of theJ1−J2Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the square lattice
Using a modified spin-wave theory which artificially restores zero sublattice magnetization on finite lattices, we investigate the entanglement properties of the N\'eel ordered $J_1 - J_2$ HeisenbergExpand
Quantum entanglement in condensed matter systems
This review focuses on the field of quantum entanglement applied to condensed matter physics systems with strong correlations, a domain which has rapidly grown over the last decade. By tracing outExpand
Simulating quantum matter through lattice field theories
Quantum many-body systems are comprised of complex networks of microscopic interactions that work together to produce novel collective phases and phenomena. For stronglyinteracting systems, theExpand
