  • Signatures of chaos and thermalization in the dynamics of many-body quantum systems. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Torres-Herrera, Eduardo Jonathan (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019-03)
    We extend the results of two of our papers [Phys. Rev. A 94, 041603R (2016) and Phys. Rev. B 97, 060303R (2018)] that touch upon the intimately connected topics of quantum chaos and thermalization. In the first, we argued ...
  • Exponentially fast dynamics of chaotic many-body systems. 

    Borgonovi, F.; Izrailev, F.M.; Santos, Lea F. (American Physical Society, 2019-01-02)
    We demonstrate analytically and numerically that in isolated quantum systems of many interacting particles, the number of many-body states participating in the evolution after a quench increases exponentially in time, ...
  • Quantum and classical lyapunov exponents in atom-field interaction systems 

    Santos, Lea F.; Chávez-Carlos, Jorge; López-del-Carpio, B.; Bastarrachea-Magnani, Miguel A.; Stránský, Pavel; Lerma-Hernández, Sergio; Hirsch, Jorge G. (American Physical Society, 2019-01-15)
    The exponential growth of the out-of-time-ordered correlator (OTOC) has been proposed as a quantum signature of classical chaos. The growth rate is expected to coincide with the classical Lyapunov exponent. This quantum-classical ...

    Santos, Lea F.; Schiulaz, Mauro; Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan (American Physical Society, 2019-05-28)
    Abstract A major open question in studies of nonequilibrium quantum dynamics is the identification of the time scales involved in the relaxation process of isolated quantum systems that have many interacting particles. ...
  • Timescales in the quench dynamics of many-body quantum systems: Participation ratio versus out-of-time ordered correlator. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Borgonovi, F.; Izrailev, F.M. (American Physical Society, 2019-05-31)
    We study quench dynamics in the many-body Hilbert space using two isolated systems with a finite number of interacting particles: a paradigmatic model of randomly interacting bosons and a dynamical (clean) model of ...
  • Dynamical signatures of quantum chaos and relaxation time scales in a spin-boson system. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Bastarrachea-Magnani, M. A.; Lerma-Hernández, S.; Torres-Herrera, E.J.; Hirsch, J.G.; Villaseñor, D. (American Physical Society, 2019-07-31)
    Quantum systems whose classical counterparts are chaotic typically have highly correlated eigenvalues and level statistics that coincide with those from ensembles of full random matrices. A dynamical manifestation of these ...
  • Calculation of transition state energies in the hcn–hnc isomerization with an algebraic model. 

    Khalouf-Rivera, Jamil; Carvajal, Miguel; Pérez-Bernal, Francisco; Santos, Lea F. (American Chemical Society, 2019-10-09)
    Recent works have shown that the spectroscopic access to highly excited states provides enough information to characterize transition states in isomerization reactions. Here, we show that information about the transition ...
  • Level repulsion and dynamics in the finite one-dimensional Anderson model. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Méndez-Bermúdez, J. A. (American Physical Society, 2019-08-29)
    Abstract This work shows that dynamical features typical of full random matrices can be observed also in the simple finite one-dimensional (1D) noninteracting Anderson model with nearest-neighbor couplings. In the ...
  • Sensitivity of quantum information to environment perturbations measured with a nonlocal out-of-time-order correlation function. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Niknam, Mohamad; Cory, David G. (American Physical Society, 2020-02-24)
    In a quantum system coupled with a non-Markovian environment, quantum information may flow out of or into the system. Measuring quantum information flow and its sensitivity to perturbations is important for a better ...
  • Dynamical Detection of Level Repulsion in the One-Particle Aubry-André Model. 

    Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Santos, Lea F. (MDPI : Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-01-20)
    Abstract: The analysis of level statistics provides a primary method to detect signatures of chaos in the quantum domain. However, for experiments with ion traps and cold atoms, the energy levels are not as easily ...
  • Quantum vs classical dynamics in a spin-boson system: manifestations of spectral correlations and scarring. 

    Santos, Lea F.; Villaseñor, David; Pilatowsky-Cameo, Saúl; Bastarrachea-Magnani, Miguel A.; Lerma, Sergio; Hirsch, Jorge G. (IOP Publishing ; Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, 2020-04-30)
    We compare the entire classical and quantum evolutions of the Dicke model in its regular and chaotic domains. This is a paradigmatic interacting spin-boson model of great experimental interest. By studying the classical ...

    The self-averaging behavior of interacting many-body quantum systems has been mostly studied at equilibrium. The present paper addresses what happens out of equilibrium, as the increase of the strength of on-site disorder ...

    Santos, Lea F.; Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Vallejo-Fabila, Isaías; Martínez-Mendoza, Andrei J. (American Chemical Society, 2020-05-28)
    In a disordered system, a quantity is self-averaging when the ratio between its variance over disorder realizations and the square of its mean decreases as the system size increases. Here, we consider a chaotic disordered ...

    Santos, Lea F.; Pérez-Bernal, F.; Torres-Herrera, E.J. (American Physical Society, 2020)
    It has been shown that, despite being local, a perturbation applied to a single site of the one-dimensional XXZ model is enough to bring this interacting integrable spin-1/2 system to the chaotic regime. Here, we show ...
