Chaotic transverse-field Ising model with measurements exhibits interesting purification dynamics. Ensemble of non-unitary dynamics of a chaotic many-body system with measurements exhibits a purification phase transition. We numerically find that the law of the increase dynamics of the purity changes by projective measurements in the model. In order to study this behavior in detail, we construct the formalism of the tripartite mutual information (TMI) for non-unitary time evolution operator by…

Universality in the tripartite information after global quenches

We consider macroscopically large 3-partitions $(A,B,C)$ of connected subsystems $A\cup B \cup C$ in infinite quantum spin chains and study the R\'enyi-$\alpha$ tripartite information

Emergence symmetry protected topological phase in spatially tuned measurement-only circuit

Topological phase transition induced by spatially-tuned single-site measurement is investigated in a measurement-only circuit, in which three different types of projective measurement operator.



Scrambling and thermalization in a diffusive quantum many-body system

Out-of-time ordered (OTO) correlation functions describe scrambling of information in correlated quantum matter. They are of particular interest in incoherent quantum systems lacking well defined

From quantum chaos and eigenstate thermalization to statistical mechanics and thermodynamics

This review gives a pedagogical introduction to the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH), its basis, and its implications to statistical mechanics and thermodynamics. In the first part, ETH is

Fast Scramblers

The problem of how fast a quantum system can scramble (thermalize) information, given that the interactions are between bounded clusters of degrees of freedom is considered, and it is conjecture that black holes are the fastest scramblers in nature.

Black holes as mirrors: Quantum information in random subsystems

We study information retrieval from evaporating black holes, assuming that the internal dynamics of a black hole is unitary and rapidly mixing, and assuming that the retriever has unlimited control

Out‐of‐time‐ordered correlators in many‐body localized systems

In many‐body localized systems, propagation of information forms a light cone that grows logarithmically with time. However, local changes in energy or other conserved quantities typically spread
