We study entanglement properties of candidate wave functions for SU(2) symmetric gapped spin liquids and Laughlin states. These wave functions are obtained by the Gutzwiller projection technique. Using topological entanglement entropy $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ as a tool, we establish topological order in chiral spin liquid and ${\mathbb{Z}}_{2}$ spin liquid wave functions, as well as a lattice version of the Laughlin state. Our results agree very well with the field theoretic result $\ensuremath…

Entanglement entropy and entanglement spectrum of triplet topological superconductors.
We analyze the entanglement entropy properties of a 2D p-wave superconductor with Rashba spin-orbit coupling, which displays a rich phase-space that supports non-trivial topological phases, as the
Rényi entropies for free field theories
A bstractRényi entropies Sq are useful measures of quantum entanglement; they can be calculated from traces of the reduced density matrix raised to power q, with q ≥ 0. For (d + 1)-dimensional

Stability of topological purity under random local unitaries
Topological order[1] is a novel kind of quantum order that goes beyond the paradigm of symmetry breaking. Its role is prominent in condensed matter theory as well as in quantum computation. In

Entanglement Entropy as a Portal to the Physics of Quantum Spin Liquids
Quantum Spin Liquids (QSLs) are phases of interacting spins that do not order even at the absolute zero temperature, making it impossible to characterize them by a local order parameter. In this
