Title: Classical field techniques for condensates in one-dimensional rings at finite temperatures

Abstract

For a condensate in a one-dimensional ring geometry, we compare the thermodynamic properties of three conceptually different classical field techniques: stochastic dynamics, microcanonical molecular dynamics, and the classical field method. Starting from nonequilibrium initial conditions, all three methods approach steady states whose distribution and correlation functions are in excellent agreement with an exact evaluation of the partition function in the high-temperature limit. Our study helps to establish these various classical field techniques as powerful nonperturbative tools for systems at finite temperatures.

  • We investigate the disorder-induced localization transition in Bose-Einstein condensates for the Anderson and Aubry-Andre models in the noninteracting limit using exact diagonalization. We show that, in addition to the standard superfluid fraction, other tools such as the entanglement and fidelity can provide clear signatures of the transition. Interestingly, the fidelity exhibits good sensitivity even for small lattices. Effects of the system size on these quantities are analyzed in detail, including the determination of a finite-size-scaling law for the critical disorder strength in the case of the Anderson model.
  • To study the time decay laws (TDL) of quasibounded Hamiltonian systems we have considered two finite potential wells with oscillating walls filled with noninteracting particles. We show that the TDL can be qualitatively different for different movement of the oscillating wall at the classical level according to the characteristic of trapped periodic orbits. However, quantum dynamics do not show such differences. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • For a finite-dimensional bipartite system, the relation between local projections and post-selected state dependence on the global state submatrices is given in a general setting. As a result joint state reconstruction is derived with strict local projective measurements and one-way classical communication, reducing the number of detectors in comparison to standard procedures. Generalization to multipartite systems is given, also reducing the number of detectors for multiqubits.
  • A self-consistent system of maps for the analysis of spatial structures and their spectrum of small vibrations in a quantum chain of atoms in an external field at finite temperatures is derived. A numerical analysis of random structures and their stability is made. The local nature of the appearance of low-frequency vibrations is demonstrated.
  • Correlation functions related to the dynamic density response of the one-dimensional Bose gas in the model of Lieb and Liniger are calculated. An exact Bose-Fermi mapping is used to work in a fermionic representation with a pseudopotential Hamiltonian. The Hartree-Fock and generalized random phase approximations are derived and the dynamic polarizability is calculated. The results are valid to first order in 1/{gamma}, where {gamma} is Lieb-Liniger coupling parameter. Approximations for the dynamic and static structure factor at finite temperature are presented. The results preclude superfluidity at any finite temperature in the large-{gamma} regime due to the Landau criterion. Due tomore » the exact Bose-Fermi duality, the results apply for spinless fermions with weak p-wave interactions as well as for strongly interacting bosons.« less
