Speaker:Jiaju Zhang Tianjin University


Quasiparticles are collective modes in many-body systems that can mimic semiclassical particles under some circumstances. I will talk about the emergence of semiclassical features in quasiparticle states of quantum chains using two quantum information quantities: entanglement entropy and subsystem distance. I will also demonstrate how the semiclassical description fails for a different measure, Shannon entropy.

      Semiclassical analysis, geometric representation and quantum ergodicity

      AbstractQuantum Ergodicity (QE) is a classical topic in spectral geometry, which states that on a compact Riemannian manifold whose geodesic flow is ergodic with respect to the Liouville measure, the Laplacian has a density one subsequence of eigenfunctions that tends to be equidistributed. In this talk, we present the QE for unitary flat bundles. By using a mixture of semiclassical and geometr...

      Construction of Non-Hermitian Parent Hamiltonian from Matrix Product States

      AbstractStandard research strategies for non-Hermitian systems include using the single-particle paradigm and incorporating non-Hermitian terms into existing Hermitian Hamiltonians. It can be challenging to directly design non-Hermitian many-body models that exhibit unique features not found in Hermitian systems. In this talk, we introduce a new method to construct non-Hermitian many-body syste...
