Detecting quantum phase transitions in the quasistationary regime of Ising chains

Recently, single-site observables have been shown to be useful for probing critical slowing down in sudden quench dynamics [Dağ et al., Phys. Rev. B 107, L121113 (2023)](http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevB.107.L121113). Here, we demonstrate the …

Universal equilibration dynamics of the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model

Equilibrium quantum many-body systems in the vicinity of phase transitions generically manifest universality. In contrast, limited knowledge has been gained on possible universal characteristics in the non-equilibrium evolution of systems in quantum …

Projective symmetry group classification of chiral $\mathbb{Z}_2$ spin liquids on the pyrochlore lattice: application to the spin-$1/2$ XXZ Heisenberg model

We give a complete classification of fully symmetric as well as chiral $\mathbb{Z}_2$ quantum spin liquids on the pyrochlore lattice using a projective symmetry group analysis of Schwinger boson mean-field states. We find $50$ independent ansätze, …

Quantum phases of dipolar bosons in multilayer optical lattice

We consider a minimal model to investigate the quantum phases of hardcore, polarized dipolar atoms confined in multilayer optical lattices. The model is a variant of the extended Bose-Hubbard model, which incorporates intralayer repulsion and …

Non-invasive measurement of currents in analog quantum simulators

Despite the pristine abilities of analog quantum simulators to study quantum dynamics, possibilities to detect currents are sparse. Here, we propose a flexible non-invasive technique to measure currents in quantum many-body systems by weakly coupling …

Dynamical phase transitions in quantum spin models with antiferromagnetic long-range interactions

In recent years, dynamical phase transitions and out-of-equilibrium criticality have been at the forefront of ultracold gases and condensed matter research. Whereas universality and scaling are established topics in equilibrium quantum many-body …

Quantum quench dynamics of dipolar bosons in 2D optical lattices

We investigate the quench dynamics of the dipolar bosons in two dimensional optical lattice of square geometry using the time dependent Gutzwiller method. The system exhibits different density orders like the checkerboard and the striped pattern, …

Critical slowing down in sudden quench dynamics

We reveal a prethermal dynamical regime upon suddenly quenching to the vicinity of a quantum phase transition in the time evolution of one-dimensional spin chains. The prethermal regime is analytically found to be self-similar and its duration is …

Generalized Discrete Truncated Wigner Approximation for Nonadiabtic Quantum-Classical Dynamics

Nonadiabatic molecular dynamics occur in a wide range of chemical reactions and femtochemistry experiments involving electronically excited states. These dynamics are hard to treat numerically as the system's complexity increases and it is thus …

From non-Hermitian linear response to dynamical correlations and fluctuation–dissipation relations in quantum many-body systems

Quantum many-body systems are characterized by their correlations. While equal-time correlators and unequal-time commutators between operators are standard observables, the direct access to unequal-time *anti-commutators* poses a formidable …
