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
