Revivals and Entanglement Propagation after a Quantum Quench

Presented by: 
John Cardy
Wednesday 13th January 2016 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 1
We consider the evolution from a state with area-law entanglement by a gapless quantum hamiltonian. Do sub-systems thermalize? How fast does the entanglement spread? In a finite system, are there quantum revivals? We attempt to answer these questions in simple solvable field theory models.
