Dynamic Kibble-Zurek scaling framework for open dissipative many-body systems crossing quantum transitions

17 Mar 2020 Rossini Davide Vicari Ettore

We study the quantum dynamics of many-body systems, in the presence of dissipation due to the interaction with the environment, under Kibble-Zurek (KZ) protocols in which one Hamiltonian parameter is slowly, and linearly in time, driven across the critical value of a zero-temperature quantum transition. In particular we address whether, and under which conditions, open quantum systems can develop a universal dynamic scaling regime similar to that emerging in closed systems... (read more)
