We investigate continuous-time quantumwalks of two indistinguishable particles [two bosons, or two fermions, or two hard-core bosons (HCBs)] in one-dimensional lattices with nearest-neighbor interactions. The results for two HCBs are consistent with the recent experimental observation of two-magnon dynamics [Fukuhara et al., Nature (London) 502, 76 (2013)]. The two interacting particles can undergo independent walking and/or co-walking depending on both quantum statistics and interaction…

Two component quantum walk in one-dimensional lattice with hopping imbalance
It is shown that the inter-component interaction strength together with the hopping imbalance between the components exhibit distinct features in the quantum walk for different initial states, which facilitates the complete reflection of both of them from each other when the two particles are initially at the two opposite edges of the lattice.
Interaction-induced topological properties of two bosons in flat-band systems
In flat-band systems, destructive interference leads to the localization of non-interacting particles and forbids their motion through the lattice. However, in the presence of interactions the
Interacting quantum walkers: Two-body bosonic and fermionic bound states
We investigate the dynamics of bound states of two interacting particles, either bosons or fermions, performing a continuous-time quantum walk on a one-dimensional lattice. We consider the situation
Quantum centipedes: collective dynamics of interacting quantum walkers
We consider the quantum centipede made of $N$ fermionic quantum walkers on the one-dimensional lattice interacting by means of the simplest of all hard-bound constraints: the distance between two

The topological states reported here are intrinsically many-body in what concerns their real space manifestation, having no counterpart in single-particle states derived from effective models.
Hybrid atom-molecule quantum walks in a one-dimensional optical lattice
We study hybrid atom-molecule quantum walks in one-dimensional optical lattices with two interacting bosonic atoms which may be converted into a molecule. The hybrid atom-molecule energy bands
Correlations in few two-component quantum walkers on a tilted lattice
We study the effect of intercomponent interactions on the dynamical properties of quantum walkers. We consider the simplest situation of two indistinguishable noninteracting walkers on a tilted
Light-cone and local front dynamics of a single-particle extended quantum walk
We study the light-cone and front dynamics of a single particle continuous time extended quantum walk on a one dimensional lattice with finite range hopping. We show that, in general, for an
Quantum correlations of identical particles subject to classical environmental noise
This work proposes a measure for the quantum discord of indistinguishable particles, based on the definition of entanglement of particles given in Wiseman and Vaccaro, and observes that on-site interaction between particles have an important protective effect on correlations against the decoherence of the system.
Quantum dynamics on a lossy non-Hermitian lattice*
We investigate quantum dynamics of a quantum walker on a finite bipartite non-Hermitian lattice, in which the particle can leak out with certain rate whenever it visits one of the two sublattices.
