OTOC for a few qubits

Presenting Author: Alex Kiral, Carleton College
Contributing Author(s): Arjendu Pattanayak

The behavior of out-of-time-ordered-correlators (OTOCs) in nonlinear dynamical quantum systems is of interest to understand many-body physics and eigenstate thermalization. We explore the behavior of the OTOC in the quantum kicked top model, a standard model used to study chaotic systems, with a small number of qubits (2 to 6), and present analysis showing the dependence of OTOCs on initial conditions, time, kick strength and number of qubits which gives insight into the asymptotic limits of this behavior and its relationship to the classical limiting system dynamics.
