    • Generic dynamical features of quenched interacting quantum systems: Survival probability, density imbalance, and out-of-time-ordered correlator. 

      Torres-Herrera, E.J.; Garcia-Garcia, Antonio M.; Santos, Lea F. (American Physical Society, 2018-02-23)
      We study numerically and analytically the quench dynamics of isolated many-body quantum systems. Using full random matrices from the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble, we obtain analytical expressions for the evolution of the ...
    • A genetic analysis of the events leading to the birth of Dinah

      An individual's understanding of any subject matter is influenced by life experiences and prior knowledge. People with divergent secular backgrounds will interpret specific aspects of the Torah from their own distinctive ...
    • Ground-state energy distribution of disordered many-body quantum systems 

      Buijsman, Wouter; Lezama, Talía L. M.; Leiser, Tamar; Santos, Lea F. (arXiv preprints, 2022-05-19)
      Extreme-value distributions are studied in the context of a broad range of problems, from the equilibrium properties of low-temperature disordered systems to the occurrence of natural disasters. Our focus here is on the ...
    • Halacha meets DNA fingerprinting 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Yeshiva University, 2015)
      The genetic code is stored within the sequences of nitrogenous bases (i.e., adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine) on DNA of nuclear chromosomes and on mitochondrial DNA. Except for isolated mutations, an individual’s DNA ...
    • Heating suppression by long-range interactions in periodically driven spin chains. 

      Santos, Lea F.; Bhakuni, Devendra Singh; Bar Lev, Yevgeny (arXiv preprint, 2021-05-20)
      We propose a mechanism to suppress heating in periodically driven many-body quantum systems by employing sufficiently long-range interactions and experimentally relevant initial conditions. The mechanism is robust to local ...
    • How many particles make up a chaotic many-body quantum system? 

      Santos, Lea F.; Zisling, Guy; Bar Lev, Yevgeny (arXiv preprint arXiv:2012.14436, 2020-12-28)
      We numerically investigate the minimum number of interacting particles, which is required for the onset of strong chaos in quantum systems on a one-dimensional lattice with short-range and long-range interactions. We ...
    • Identification of quantum scars via phase-space localization measures 

      Santos, Lea F.; Pilatowsky-Cameo, Sa ́ul; Villase ̃nor, David; Bastarrachea-Magnan, Miguel A.; Lerma-Hern ́andez, Sergio; Hirsch, Jorge G. (arXiv preprint, 2021-07-14)
      There is no unique way to quantify the degree of delocalization of quantum states in unbounded continuous spaces. In this work, we explore a recently introduced localization measure that quantifies the portion of the ...
    • In pursuit of a wild patience 

      Hirsch, Miriam (Routledge / Taylor & Francis, 2014)
      This essay explores how the concept of wild patience informs our practice of teaching and learning in classrooms and in teacher education; how it crafts imaginative spaces in curriculum design, implementation, and evaluation ...
    • Interacting bosons in a triple well: Preface of many-body quantum chaos 

      Santos, Lea F.; Wittmann W., Karin; Castro, E.R.; Foester, Angela (, 2021-11)
      Systems of interacting bosons in triple-well potentials are of significant theoretical and experimental interest. They are explored in contexts that range from quantum phase transitions and quantum dynamics to semiclassical ...
    • Interview with Prof. Jill Katz at Tel es Safi. [video] 

      Katz, Jill C.; Selavan, Nachliel (Israel: Nachliel Selavan Museum Tours [], 2016-07)
      Interview with Prof. Dr. Jill C. Katz, Stern College for Women, Yeshiva University and Nachliel Selavan about Tel es Safi, Goliath's hometown).
    • Is there a place for prehistoric man within the Torah? The view of one European gadol, Rabbi Israel Lipschitz 

      Babich, Harvey (Yeshiva University Stern College for Women, 2021)
      This article is a companion to the prior article, “Dinosaurs and Wooly Mammoths - is there a Torah Viewpoint?” [1] and the rationale for publication is the same -- numerous Jewish day schools and yeshivot visit the ...
    • Jewish day school wounds and what we can do about them 

      Hirsch, Miriam (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
      This article is based upon a qualitative research study that examined 95 school stories written by Jewish female teacher candidates in an undergraduate education course. Many candidates wrote inspirational or humorous ...
    • The Jewish People under the microscope 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Torah Activities Council (TAC), Yeshiva University, 2000)
      As Orthodox Jewish communities grow in size and numbers, medical and health care professionals have become increasingly aware of the special requirements for this unique population. Appropriate articles in medical journals ...
    • The kof, reverse evolution, and the adnei ha-sadeh 

      Babich, Harvey (Stern College for Women, Torah Activities Council (TAC), Yeshiva University, 2002)
      As noted in Chagigah (16a), human beings hove three characteristics in common with, and three other characteristics distinguishing them from, animals. The similarities include eating and drinking, elimination of wastes, ...
    • Level Repulsion and Dynamics in the Finite One-Dimensional Anderson Model. 

      Torres-Herrera, E. Jonathan; Méndez-Bermúdez, J. A.; Santos, Lea F. (Philip Allan Publishers Limited, 2019-09-12)
      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 thermodynamic ...

    • Localization and the effects of symmetries in the thermalization properties of one-dimensional quantum systems. 

      Santos, Lea F.; Rigol, Marcos (American Physical Society, 2010)
      We study how the proximity to an integrable point or to localization as one approaches the atomic limit, as well as the mixing of symmetries in the chaotic domain, may affect the onset of thermalization in finite one-dimensional ...
    • Locusts and elephants 

      Babich, Harvey (Office of the Dean and Office of Admissions, Stern College for Women, YU, 2006)
