The quantum null energy condition (QNEC) is a lower bound on the energy-momentum tensor in terms of the variation of the entanglement entropy of a sub-region along a null direction. To gain insights into quantum thermodynamics of many-body systems, we study if the QNEC restricts quenches driven by energy-momentum inflow from an infinite memoryless bath in two-dimensional holographic theories. We find that an increase in both entropy and temperature is necessary but not sufficient to not violate… Expand

Quantum majorization and a complete set of entropic conditions for quantum thermodynamics
TLDR
A quantum-mechanical generalization of majorization is used to derive a complete set of necessary and sufficient conditions for thermal transformations of quantum states, based on natural physical principles, namely, energy conservation, the existence of equilibrium states, and the requirement that quantum coherence be accounted for thermodynamics.
