Statistical Correlations of the N-particle Moshinsky Model
AbstractWe study the correlation of the ground state of an N-particle Moshinsky model by computing the Shannon entropy in both position and momentum spaces. We have derived the Shannon entropy and mutual information with analytical forms of such an N-particle Moshinsky model, and this helps us test the entropic uncertainty principle. The Shannon entropy in position space decreases as interaction strength increases. However, Shannon entropy in momentum space has the opposite trend. Shannon entropy of the whole system satisfies the equality of entropic uncertainty principle. Our results also indicate that, independent of the sizes of the two subsystems, the mutual information increases monotonically as the interaction strength increases. View Full-Text
