Title Complexity Transitions in Open Many-Body Systems
Abstract Under the environment’s action, open quantum many-body systems are often transitioning into a classical regime described by a polynomial number of parameters and simulable by a classical algorithm. Understanding the conditions of this transition is crucial for quantum computing and classifying open quantum phases. In my talk, I will explore this phenomenon using two different measures: computational hardness and quantum entanglement. I will propose free fermions with quadratic jump operators as a promising candidate for the complexity transition. I also show that, under an anticoncentration assumption, the transition in entanglement in monitored random circuits maps to a disordered classical phase transition.
