Out-of-time ordered correlators in kicked coupled tops and the role of conserved quantities in information scrambling

  title={Out-of-time ordered correlators in kicked coupled tops and the role of conserved quantities in information scrambling},
  author={Naga Dileep Varikuti and Vaibhav Madhok},
We investigate the operator growth dynamics in a bipartite system of kicked coupled tops with out-of-time ordered correlators (OTOC). We numerically study OTOCs for different types of initial operators, including the case of random operators where the operators are chosen randomly from the Gaussian unitary ensemble. We observe that the presence of a conserved quantity results in different types of scrambling behaviors for various choices of initial operators depending on whether the operators… 
Detecting few-body quantum chaos: out-of-time ordered correlators at saturation
: We study numerically and analytically the time dependence and saturation of out-of-time ordered correlators (OTOC) in chaotic few-body quantum-mechanical systems: quantum Henon-Heiles system
Revisiting the role of chaos in quantum tomography
Does chaos in the dynamics enable information gain in quantum tomography or impedes it? We address this question by considering continuous measurement tomography in which the measurement record is
Quantum memory at an eigenstate phase transition in a weakly chaotic model
We study a fully connected quantum spin model resonantly coupled to a small environment of non-interacting spins, and investigate how initial state properties are remembered at long times. We find


Out-of-time-ordered correlators in a quantum Ising chain
Out-of-time-ordered correlators (OTOC) have been proposed to characterize quantum chaos in generic systems. However, they can also show interesting behavior in integrable models, resembling the OTOC
Diffusive Hydrodynamics of Out-of-Time-Ordered Correlators with Charge Conservation
The scrambling of quantum information in closed many-body systems has received considerable recent attention. Two useful measures of scrambling have emerged: the spreading of initially-local
Operator scrambling and quantum chaos
Operator scrambling is a crucial ingredient of quantum chaos. Specifically, in the quantum chaotic system, a simple operator can become increasingly complicated under unitary time evolution. This can
Operator Hydrodynamics, OTOCs, and Entanglement Growth in Systems without Conservation Laws
Thermalization and scrambling are the subject of much recent study from the perspective of many-body quantum systems with locally bounded Hilbert spaces (`spin chains'), quantum field theory and
Information Scrambling over Bipartitions: Equilibration, Entropy Production, and Typicality.
It is shown that this bipartite OTOC is equal to the operator entanglement of the evolution, and its interplay with entangling power is determined, and it is provided operational significance by unraveling intimate connections with average entropy production and scrambling of information at the level of quantum channels.
Out-of-time-ordered correlators and quantum walks.
Three separate cases of operators, variously localized in the coin and walker spaces, are discussed in this context and it is found that the approximated behavior of the OTOC is well described by simple algebraic functions in all three cases with different timescales of growth.
Exponential growth of out-of-time-order correlator without chaos: inverted harmonic oscillator
We provide a detailed examination of a thermal out-of-time-order correlator (OTOC) growing exponentially in time in systems without chaos. The system is a one-dimensional quantum mechanics with a
Scrambling in strongly chaotic weakly coupled bipartite systems: Universality beyond the Ehrenfest timescale
Out-of-time-order correlators (OTOC), vigorously being explored as a measure of quantum chaos and information scrambling, is studied here in the natural and simplest multi-particle context of
Quantum signatures of chaos, thermalization, and tunneling in the exactly solvable few-body kicked top.
This work shows that the three- and four-qubit cases are exactly solvable and yet, interestingly, can display signatures of ergodic behavior and thermalization, a textbook example of quantum chaos.
Chaos in quantum channels
The butterfly effect in quantum systems implies the information-theoretic definition of scrambling, which shows that any input subsystem must have near vanishing mutual information with almost all partitions of the output.
