Reduced density matrix and internal dynamics for multicomponent regions

  title={Reduced density matrix and internal dynamics for multicomponent regions},
  author={Horacio Casini and Marina Huerta},
We find the density matrix corresponding to the vacuum state of a massless Dirac field in two dimensions reduced to a region of the space formed by several disjoint intervals. We calculate explicitly its spectral decomposition. The imaginary power of the density matrix is a unitary operator implementing an internal time flow (the modular flow). We show that in the case of more than one interval this evolution is non-local, producing both, advance in the causal structure and ”teleportation… CONTINUE READING
