Pengfei Zhang (Caltech) - Information Scrambling in SYK-like Models

Friday, November 5, 2021 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

 

Information Scrambling in SYK-like Models

Understanding how information disperses in quantum many-body systems is one of the most important topics in modern quantum physics. In this talk, I will present two recent theoretical works on information scrambling in SYK-like models in short-time t~O(1) and late time t~O(log N) limit. In the short-time limit, we give a fundamental bound on the stability of the quantum Lyapunov exponent, which also has implications in sub-AdS holography. We reveal two mechanisms of information scrambling in weakly interacting and strongly interacting systems. In the long-time limit, we show that OTOC generally takes the form of a scattering problem in an emergent bulk, regardless of the interacting strength. This talk is based on collaborations with Yingfei Gu and Alexei Kitaev.
