Title: Entanglement in the Majumdar-Ghosh model

Abstract

We present an analysis of the entanglement characteristics in the Majumdar-Ghosh (MG) or J{sub 1}-J{sub 2} Heisenberg model. For a system consisting of up to 28 spins, there is a deviation from the scaling behavior of the entanglement entropy characterizing the unfrustrated Heisenberg chain above J{sub 2}{approx_equal}0.25. This feature can be used as an indicator of the dimer phase transition occurring in this model. Additionally, we also consider entanglement at the MG point J{sub 2}=0.5J{sub 1}.

  • Exact solutions to static and nonstatic Einstein-Maxwell equations in the presence of extremely charged dust embedded on thin shells are constructed. Singularities of multi-black-hole Majumdar- Papapetrou and Kastor-Traschen solutions are removed by placing the matter on thin shells. Double spherical thin shell solution is given as an illustration and the matter densities on the shells are derived.
  • No abstract prepared.
  • The Newtonian theory of gravitation and electrostatics admits equilibrium configurations of charged fluids where the charge density can be equal to the mass density, in appropriate units. The general relativistic analog for charged dust stars was discovered by Majumdar and by Papapetrou. In the present work we consider Einstein-Maxwell solutions in d-dimensional spacetimes and show that there are Majumdar-Papapetrou type solutions for all d{>=}4. It is verified that the equilibrium is independent of the shape of the distribution of the charged matter. It is also showed that for perfect fluid solutions satisfying the Majumdar-Papapetrou condition with a boundary where themore » pressure is zero, the pressure vanishes everywhere, and that the (d-1)-dimensional spatial section of the spacetime is conformal to a Ricci-flat space. The Weyl d-dimensional axisymmetric solutions are generalized to include electric field and charged matter.« less
  • During the 1990s a large amount of work was dedicated to studying general relativity coupled to non-Abelian Yang-Mills type theories. Several remarkable results were accomplished. In particular, it was shown that the magnetic monopole, a solution of the Yang-Mills-Higgs equations can indeed be coupled to gravitation. For a low Higgs mass it was found that there are regular monopole solutions, and that for a sufficiently massive monopole the system develops an extremal magnetic Reissner-Nordstroem quasihorizon with all the matter fields laying inside the horizon. These latter solutions, called quasi-black holes, although nonsingular, are arbitrarily close to having a horizon, andmore » for an external observer it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish these from a true black hole as a critical solution is approached. However, at precisely the critical value the quasi-black hole turns into a degenerate space-time. On the other hand, for a high Higgs mass, a sufficiently massive monopole develops also a quasi-black hole, but at a critical value it turns into an extremal true horizon, now with matter fields showing up outside. One can also put a small Schwarzschild black hole inside the magnetic monopole, the configuration being an example of a non-Abelian black hole. Surprisingly, Majumdar-Papapetrou systems, Abelian systems constructed from extremal dust (pressureless matter with equal charge and energy densities), also show a resembling behavior. Previously, we have reported that one can find Majumdar-Papapetrou solutions which are everywhere nonsingular, but can be arbitrarily close of being a black hole, displaying the same quasi-black-hole behavior found in the gravitational magnetic monopole solutions. With the aim of better understanding the similarities between gravitational magnetic monopoles and Majumdar-Papapetrou systems, here we study a particular system, namely a system composed of two extremal electrically charged spherical shells (or stars, generically) in the Einstein-Maxwell-Majumdar-Papapetrou theory. We first review the gravitational properties of the magnetic monopoles, and then compare with the gravitational properties of the double extremal electric shell system. These quasi-black-hole solutions can help in the understanding of true black holes, and can give some insight into the nature of the entropy of black holes in the form of entanglement.« less
  • We investigate the entanglement between any two spins in a one dimensional Heisenberg chain as a function of temperature and the external magnetic field. We find that the entanglement in an antiferromagnetic chain can be increased by increasing the temperature or the external field. Increasing the field can also create entanglement between otherwise disentangled spins. This entanglement can be confirmed by testing Bell{close_quote}s inequalities involving any two spins in the solid.
