Nearly-linear light cones in long-range interacting quantum systems

April 13, 2015
Michael S. Foss-Feig, Zhexuan Gong, Charles W. Clark, Alexey V. Gorshkov
In non-relativistic quantum theories with short-range Hamiltonians, a velocity $v$ can be chosen such that the influence of any local perturbation is approximately confined to within a distance $r$ until a time $t \sim r/v$, thereby defining a linear light

Persistence of locality in systems with power-law interactions

July 16, 2014
Zhexuan Gong, Michael S. Foss-Feig, Spyridon Michalakis, Alexey Gorshkov
Motivated by recent experiments with ultra-cold matter, we derive a new bound on the propagation of information in D- dimensional lattice models exhibiting 1/r^alpha interactions with alpha > D. The bound contains two terms: One accounts for the short

Non-local propagation of correlations in long-range interacting quantum systems

July 10, 2014
Phil Richerme, Zhexuan Gong, Aaron Lee, Crystal Senko, Jacob Smith, Michael S. Foss-Feig, Spyridon Michalakis, Alexey Gorshkov, Christopher Monroe
The maximum speed with which information can propagate in a quantum many-body system directly affects how quickly disparate parts of the system can become correlated and how difficult the system will be to describe numerically. For systems with only short
