Abstract

We investigate multipartite entanglement dynamics in disordered spin-1∕2 lattice models exhibiting a transition from integrability to quantum chaos. Borrowing from the generalized entanglement framework, we construct measures for correlations relative to arbitrary local and bilocal spin observables, and show how they naturally signal the crossover between distinct dynamical regimes. Analytical estimates are obtained in the short- and long-time limits. Our results are in qualitative agreement with predictions from the random matrix theory and are relevant to both condensed-matter physics and to the stability of quantum information in disordered quantum computing hardware.
