Quench dynamics of a Tonks-Girardeau gas released from a harmonic trap    [PDF]

Mario Collura, Spyros Sotiriadis, Pasquale Calabrese
We consider the non-equilibrium dynamics of a gas of impenetrable bosons released from a harmonic trapping potential to a circle. The many body dynamics is solved analytically and the time dependence of all the physically relevant correlations is described. We prove that, for large times and in the thermodynamic limit, the reduced density matrix of any subsystem converges to a generalized Gibbs ensemble as a consequence of the integrability of the model. We discuss the approach to the stationary behavior at late times. We also describe the time-dependence of the entanglement entropy which attains a very simple form in the stationary state.
