Boundary-driven Lindblad dynamics of random quantum spin chains : strong disorder approach for the relaxation, the steady state and the current

Abstract : The Lindblad dynamics of the XX quantum chain with large random fields $h_j$ (the couplings $J_j$ can be either uniform or random) is considered for boundary-magnetization-drivings acting on the two end-spins. Since each boundary-reservoir tends to impose its own magnetization, we first study the relaxation spectrum in the presence of a single reservoir as a function of the system size via some boundary-strong-disorder renormalization approach. The non-equilibrium-steady-state in the presence of two reservoirs can be then analyzed from the effective renormalized Linbladians associated to the two reservoirs. The magnetization is found to follow a step profile, as found previously in other localized chains. The strong disorder approach allows to compute explicitly the location of the step of the magnetization profile and the corresponding magnetization-current for each disordered sample in terms of the random fields and couplings.
