The large deviations at ‘Level 2.5 in time’ for time-dependent ensemble-empirical-observables,
introduced by Maes et al (2008 Markov Proc. Relat. Fields 14 445) for the case of ##IMG##

processes, are extended to the case of open Markov processes with reservoirs: explicit formulas are

We rigorously discuss the large- ##IMG##

with a short-range two-body potential. Considering the system as a mixture of ##IMG##

We apply the GBDT version of the Bäcklund–Darboux transformation to the nonlocal NLS (focusing and
defocusing cases). The matrix case is included and solutions in the form of rectangular ##IMG##

In the case of the trivial initial solution, wide classes of the wave functions and multipole

The ##IMG## [] -symmetric version
of the one-dimensional finite square well potential is constructed by supplementing the real finite
square well potential with constant imaginary components outside the well. This study is motivated
by the unusual features of the ##IMG##

Nonclassical states of a quantized light are described in terms of Glauber–Sudarshan ##IMG##

genuine classical probability distribution. Despite several attempts, defining a uniform measure of
nonclassicality (NC) for the single-mode quantum states of light remains an open task. In our

We establish that a Bloch-state ansatz based on periodic uniform matrix product states (PUMPS), originally designed to capture single-quasiparticle excitations in gapped systems, is in fact capable of accurately approximating all low-energy eigenstates of critical quantum spin chains on the circle. ...

New techniques based on weak measurements have recently been introduced to the field of quantum state reconstruction. Some of them allow the direct measurement of each matrix element of an unknown density operator and need only $O(d)$ different operations, compared to ${d}^{2}$ linearly independent ...

A general time-dependent quantum system can be driven fast from its initial ground state to its final ground state without generating transitions by adding a steering term to the Hamiltonian. We show how this technique can be modified to improve on the standard quantum adiabatic algorithm by making ...

We identify a class of one-dimensional spin and fermionic lattice models that display diverging spin and charge diffusion constants, including several paradigmatic models of exactly solvable, strongly correlated many-body dynamics such as the isotropic Heisenberg spin chains, the Fermi-Hubbard model...

We consider a system of two bosonic modes each subject to the dynamics induced by a thermal Markovian environment and we identify instantaneous, local symplectic controls that minimize the loss of entanglement in the Gaussian regime. By minimizing the decrease of the logarithmic negativity at every ...
