Date: | Tuesday, Nov 01, 2022 |

Time: | 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. |

Venue: | Meghnad Saha Lecture Theatre |

Details: | In this talk, I will present the “link representation formalism” that we introduced in our recent works [1-2], where we assume entanglement entropy of any bipartition of a quantum state can be approximated as the sum of certain link strengths connecting internal and external sites. The representation is useful to unveil the geometry associated with the entanglement structure of a quantum many-body state which may occasionally differ from the one suggested by the Hamiltonian of the system. In the cases where the representation is exact, the elements of the link matrix coincide with the mutual information between pairs of sites. In others, it provides a very good approximation, and in all the cases it yields a natural entanglement contour which is similar to previous proposals [3]. We will present examples where the representation is exact and then discuss several non-exact cases where we can apply certain approximation techniques that include, matrix product states, free fermionic states, or cases in which contiguous blocks are specially relevant. The accuracy of the representation for different types of states and partitions will also be discussed. Finally, we show that the representation helps us in extending the quasi-particle picture useful in explaining the growth of entanglement entropy of short-range initial states when quenched under critical Hamiltonian, to the initial states presenting long-range correlations [4-5].
