Abstract

Finite simplex lattice models are used in different branches of science, e.g., in condensed-matter physics, when studying frustrated magnetic systems and non-Hermitian localization phenomena; or in chemistry, when describing experiments with mixtures. An n-simplex represents the simplest possible polytope in n dimensions, e.g., a line segment, a triangle, and a tetrahedron in one, two, and three dimensions, respectively. In this work, we show that various fully solvable, in general non-Hermitian, n-simplex lattice models with open boundaries can be constructed from the high-order field-moments space of quadratic bosonic systems. Namely, we demonstrate that such n-simplex lattices can be formed by a dimensional reduction of highly degenerate iterated polytope chains in (k>n)-dimensions, which naturally emerge in the field-moments space. Our findings indicate that the field-moments space of bosonic systems provides a versatile platform for simulating real-space n-simplex lattices exhibiting non-Hermitian phenomena, and it yields valuable insights into the structure of many-body systems exhibiting similar complexity. Among a variety of practical applications, these simplex structures can offer a physical setting for implementing the discrete fractional Fourier transform, an indispensable tool for both quantum and classical signal processing.
