We propose a scaling theory for the universal imaginary-time quantum critical dynamics for both short times and long times. We discover that there exists a universal critical initial slip related to a small initial order parameter $M_0$. In this stage, the order parameter $M$ increases with the imaginary time $\tau$ as $M\propto M_0\tau^\theta$ with a universal initial slip exponent $\theta$. For the one-dimensional transverse-field Ising model, we estimate $\theta$ to be $0.373$, which is… Expand

Universal Prethermal Dynamics in Gross-Neveu-Yukawa Criticality.

- 2019

The prethermal dynamics of the Gross-Neveu-Yukawa quantum field theory, suddenly quenched in the vicinity of a critical point, is found to be controlled by two fixed points depending on the size of the quench, and the temporal crossover between the universal scaling regimes governed by the two universality classes is explored.

The results demonstrate that new exponents are needed for scaling in the whole driven process even in the case in which an external field is applied, and there exists a revised FTS regime in cooling that is found to exhibit a special feature different from that in heating. Expand
