It is commonly believed that there are only two types of particle exchange statistics in quantum mechanics, fermions and bosons, with the exception of anyons in two dimension. In principle, a second exception known as parastatistics, which extends outside of two dimensions, has been considered but was believed to be physically equivalent to fermions and bosons. In this paper we show that nontrivial parastatistics inequivalent to either fermions or bosons can exist in physical systems. These new types of identical particles obey generalized exclusion principles, leading to exotic free-particle thermodynamics distinct from any system of free fermions and bosons. We formulate our theory by developing a second quantization of paraparticles, which naturally includes exactly solvable non-interacting theories, and incorporates physical constraints such as locality. We then construct a family of one-dimensional quantum spin models where free parastatistical particles emerge as quasiparticle excitations. This demonstrates the possibility of a new type of quasiparticle in condensed matter systems, and, more speculatively, the potential for previously unconsidered types of elementary particles.

The nonadiabatic dynamic of the electromagnetic field triggers photons generation from the quantum vacuum. Shortcuts to adiabaticity, instead, are protocols that mimic the field’s adiabatic dynamic in a finite time. Here, we show how the counterdiabatic term of the transitionless tracking algorithm cancels out, exactly, the term responsible for the photon production in the dynamical Casimir effect. This result suggests that the energy of producing photons out of the vacuum is related to the energetic cost of the shortcut. Furthermore, if the system operates under a quantum thermodynamic cycle, we confirm the equivalence between the adiabatic and nonadiabatic work outputs. Finally, our study reveals that identifying these unreported observations can only be possible using the so-called effective Hamiltonian approach.

Beginning with the Everett-DeWitt many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, there have been a series of proposals for how the state vector of a quantum system might split at any instant into orthogonal branches, each of which exhibits approximately classical behavior. In an earlier version of the present work, we proposed a decomposition of a state vector into branches by finding the minimum of a measure of the mean squared quantum complexity of the branches in the branch decomposition. Here we define a formulation of quantum complexity for quantum electrodynamics on a lattice in Minkowski space. With respect to a particular Lorentz frame, for a system beginning in a state of low complexity, branching occurs repeatedly over time with each branch splitting successively into further sub-branches among which the branch followed by the real world is chosen according to the Born rule. Alternatively, in an explicitly Lorentz covariant formulation, the real world is a single random draw from the set of branches at asymptotically late time, which can then be restored to finite time in a particular Lorentz frame by sequentially retracing the set of branching events implied by the late time choice. The earlier version here is simplified by replacing a definition of complexity based on the physical vacuum with a definition based on the bare vacuum. As a consequence of this replacement, the physical vacuum itself is predicted to branch yielding branches with energy densities slightly larger than that of the unbranched vacuum. If the vacuum energy renormalization constant is chosen as usual to give 0 energy density to the unbranched vacuum, vacuum branches will appear to have a combination of dark energy and dark matter densities but no additional particle content.

Spontaneous stochasticity is a modern paradigm for turbulent transport at infinite Reynolds numbers. It suggests that tracer particles advected by rough turbulent flows and subject to additional thermal noise, remain nondeterministic in the limit where the random input, namely, the thermal noise, va…

The authors show that a certain wave-particle duality relation is a type of uncertainty relation whose functional form is known to be able to witness the impossibility of a noncontextual model. In this way, they show that the quantum trade-off between path distinguishability and fringe visibility can witness contextuality and they discuss the requirements on an interferometric experiment necessary for achieving a noise-robust test.
