quantum mechanicsopen systemsspin chainsWe address the problem of analyzing the radius of convergence of perturbative expansion of nonequilibrium steady states of Lindblad-driven spin chains. A simple formal approach is developed for systematically computing the perturbative expansion of small driven systems. We consider the paradigmatic model of an open XXZ spin-1/2 chain with boundary-supported ultralocal Lindblad dissipators and treat two different perturbative cases: (i) expansion in the system-bath coupling parameter and (ii) expansion in the driving (bias) parameter. In the first case (i) we find that the radius of convergence quickly shrinks with increasing the system size, while in the second case (ii) we find that the convergence radius is always larger than 1, and in particular it approaches 1 from above as we change the anisotropy from an easy-plane (XY) to an easy-axis (Ising) regime.American Physical Society20172017-07-27 14:48:24Znanstveno delo94331UDK: 530.145ISSN pri članku: 2470-0045DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.95.042137COBISS_ID: 3114852OceCobissID: 2048366611slAmerican Physical Society
