State-dependent spread of entanglement in relatively local Hamiltonians
Speaker: Sung-Sik Lee (Department of Physics Astronomy, McMaster University)
In this talk, I will present a background independent non-local Hamiltonians from which local theories emerge within a set of short-range entangled states. The dimension, topology and geometry of the emergent local theory is determined by the initial state to which the Hamiltonian is applied. In this relatively local Hamiltonian, the coordinate speeds at which entanglement spreads and local disturbance propagates in space strongly depend on state.
