Work statistics across a quantum phase transition

18 Feb 2020 Fei Zhaoyu Freitas Nahuel Cavina Vasco Quan H. T. Esposito Massimiliano

We investigate the statistics of the work performed during a quench across a quantum phase transition using the adiabatic perturbation theory. It is shown that all the cumulants of work exhibit universal scaling behavior analogous to the Kibble-Zurek scaling for the average density of defects... (read more)
