The one-dimensional quantum Ising model is one of the most studied quantum systems. In a transeverse field, it possesses a quantum critical point. For non-critical transverse field it can be described by free massive Majorana fermions. With critical transverse field, in the presence of finite longitudinal field it can be described by the $E_8$ integrable model. I will present our studies on the time evolution of entanglement entropy after a global (mass) quench in both cases, comparing scaling field theory results to exact and numerical spin chain calculations extrapolated to the scaling limit. I will discuss the linear in time growth of entanglement and its suppression, and long living entanglement oscillations.
The talk is based on the recent works:
