Recent Updates

 

 

·      Novel Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking mechanism in Invariant Matrix Models:

A gap in the eigenvalue distribution induces a localization of the eigenvectors. The full U(N) symmetry is spontaneously broken into a smaller one and ergodicity is lost.

 

·      Global Quantum Quench on a Localized Excitations:

The short time dynamics of a soliton after a quantum quench is universal: a reflected and transmitted profiles are generated, whose size and velocity depend only on the ration between the sound velocity before and after the quench

 

·      Local Convertibility and edge states in quantum many body systems” published in Physical Review X:

Lack of local convertibility can be understood in terms of edge state recombination and their entanglement properties, providing a characterization for Universal Quantum Simulators
