Strongly long-range interacting quantum systems-those with interactions decaying as a power law 1/r α in the distance r on a D-dimensional lattice for α ⩽ D-have received significant interest in recent years. They are present in leading experimental platforms for quantum computation and simulation, as well as in theoretical models of quantum-information scrambling and fast entanglement creation. Since no notion of locality is expected in such systems, a general understanding of their dynamics…

Absence of Fast Scrambling in Thermodynamically Stable Long-Range Interacting Systems.
This study rigorously demonstrate that the OTOC shows a polynomial growth over time as long as α>D and the necessary scrambling time over a distance R is larger than t≳R^{[(2 α-2D)/(2α-D+1)]}.

Abstract In recent years, various aspects of theoretical models with long range interactions have attracted attention, ranging from out-of-time-ordered correlators to entanglement. In the present
Quantum chaos and ensemble inequivalence of quantum long-range Ising chains
We use large-scale exact diagonalization to study the quantum Ising chain in a transverse field with long-range power-law interactions decaying with exponent α. We numerically study various probes
Lieb-Robinson Light Cone for Power-Law Interactions.
This work closes a decades-long hunt for optimal Lieb-Robinson bounds on quantum information dynamics with power-law interactions by presenting a definitive answer to this question for all exponents α>2d and all spatial dimensions d.
Measurement-induced criticality in extended and long-range unitary circuits
We explore the dynamical phases of unitary Clifford circuits with variable-range interactions, coupled to a monitoring environment. We investigate two classes of models, distinguished by the action
Optimal State Transfer and Entanglement Generation in Power-Law Interacting Systems
The protocol saturates the Lieb-Robinson bounds (up to subpolynomial corrections), thereby establishing the optimality of the protocol and the tightness of the bounds in this regime.
Finite Speed of Quantum Information in Models of Interacting Bosons at Finite Density
We prove that quantum information propagates with a finite velocity in any model of interacting bosons whose (possibly time-dependent) Hamiltonian contains spatially local single-boson hopping terms
Lieb-Robinson bounds and out-of-time order correlators in a long-range spin chain
Lieb Robinson bounds quantify the maximal speed of information spreading in nonrelativistic quantum systems. We discuss the relation of Lieb Robinson bounds to out of time order correlators, which
Polynomial growth of out-of-time-order correlator in arbitrary realistic long-range interacting systems
This study rigorously demonstrate that the OTOC shows a polynomial growth over time as long as $\alpha>D$ and the necessary scrambling time over a distance $R$ is larger than $t\gtrsim R^{\frac{2 \alpha-2D}{2\alpha-D+1}}$.
Complexity phase diagram for interacting and long-range bosonic Hamiltonians
A "complexity phase diagram" is demonstrated for the Bose-Hubbard model with long-range hopping that shows how the complexity of simulating time evolution varies according to various parameters appearing in the problem, such as the evolution time, the particle density, and the degree of locality.


Spread of correlations in long-range interacting quantum systems.
This work analyzes a local quantum quench in the long-range Ising model in a transverse field to identify three dynamical regimes: short-range-like with an emerging light cone for α>2, weakly long range for 1<α<2 without a clear light cone but with a finite propagation speed of almost all excitations, and fully nonlocal for α<1 with instantaneous transmission of correlations.
Fast Quantum State Transfer and Entanglement Renormalization Using Long-Range Interactions.
This protocol realizes an exponential speedup in cases of α=d, which could be useful in creating large entangled states for dipole-dipole (1/r^{3}) interactions in three dimensions.
Nearly linear light cones in long-range interacting quantum systems.
This work rules out the possibility that light cones of power-law interacting systems are bounded by a polynomial for α>2D and become linear as α→∞, suggesting that the velocity, as calculated from the slope of the light cone, may grow exponentially in time.
Breakdown of quasilocality in long-range quantum lattice models.
This work studies the nonequilibrium dynamics of correlations in quantum lattice models in the presence of long-range interactions decaying asymptotically as a power law, and shows that this decay is not only sufficient but also necessary for supersonic propagation.
Persistence of locality in systems with power-law interactions.
A new bound on the propagation of information in D-dimensional lattice models exhibiting 1/r^{α} interactions with α>D is derived, which qualitatively reproduce the short- and long-distance dynamical behavior following a local quench in an XY chain and a transverse-field Ising chain.
Locality and Digital Quantum Simulation of Power-Law Interactions
A new Lieb-Robinson bound is derived for systems with interactions that decay with distance r as a power law, 1/rα, which implies an effective light cone tighter than all previous bounds.
Universal scaling laws for correlation spreading in quantum systems with short- and long-range interactions
We study the spreading of information in a wide class of quantum systems, with variable-range interactions. We show that, after a quench, it generally features a double structure, whose scaling laws
Emergent locality in systems with power-law interactions
While the interactions are long-range, their effect on information spreading is asymptotically negligible as long as $\alpha>1$, which directly implies that all previously obtained rigorous bounds on information spread in long- range interacting systems are not tight, and thus could be improved.
Towards the fast scrambling conjecture
A bstractMany proposed quantum mechanical models of black holes include highly non-local interactions. The time required for thermalization to occur in such models should reflect the relaxation times
Fast scrambling on sparse graphs
It is proposed that a logarithmic scrambling time can be achieved in most quantum systems with sparse connectivity, and how quantum chaos is not universally related to scrambling is elucidated.
