  • TITLE: Violation of Cluster Property in Quantum Antiferromagnet

    AUTHORS: Tomo Munehisa

    KEYWORDS: Cluster Property, Entanglement, Quantum Antiferromagnet, Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking

    JOURNAL NAME: World Journal of Condensed Matter Physics, Vol.8 No.1, January 26, 2018

    ABSTRACT: The cluster property is one of fundamental properties in physics. This property means that there are no relations between two events that are sufficiently separated. Because the cluster property is directly connected with entanglement in quantum field theory and in many-body systems, theoretical and experimental progress on entanglement stimulates us to study this property deeply. In this paper we investigate the cluster property in the spin 1/2 XXZ antiferromagnet on the square lattice with an explicitly symmetry breaking interaction of strength g. In this model spontaneous symmetry breaking occurs when the lattice size N is infinitely large. On the other hand, we have to make g zero in order to obtain quantities in the XXZ model with no symmetry breaking interaction. Since some results depend on the sequence of limit operations — and , it is difficult to draw a clear conclusion in these limits. Therefore we study the model with finite g on the finite lattice, whose size N is supposed to be 1020, for our quantitative calculations. Then we can obtain the concrete ground state. In order to study the cluster property we calculate the spin correlation function. It is known that the function due to Nambu-Goldstone mode (gapless mode), which is calculated using linear spin wave theory, satisfies this property. In this paper we show that almost degenerate states also induce the spin correlation. We assume that the spin correlation function in measurements is a sum of the function due to Nambu-Goldstone mode and one due to these degenerate states. Then we examine whether the additional correlation function violates the cluster property or not. Our conclusion is that this function is finite at any distance, which means the violation of the cluster property, and it is of order of . Except for the case of extremely small g, this violation is the fine effect. Therefore the correlation function due to the degenerate states can be observed only when it is larger than the spin correlation function due to Nambu-Goldstone mode. We show that g required for this condition depends on the distance between positions of two spin operators.
