Classification of entanglement and quantum phase transition in XX model    [PDF]

Ting Zhang, Pinx-Xing Chen, Wei-Tao Liu, Cheng-Zu Li
We study the relation between entanglement and quantum phase transition (QPT) from a new perspective. Motivated by one's intuition: QPT is characterized by the change of the ground-state structure, while entangled states belong to different classes have different structures, we conjecture that QPT occurs as the class of ground-state entanglement changes and prove it in XX model. Despite the classification of multipartite entanglement is yet unresolved, we proposed a new method to judge whether two many-body states belong to the same entanglement class.
