TOPIC: Dynamics of the Entanglement Between Two Oscillators in the Same Environment

We provide a complete characterization of the evolution of entanglement between two oscillators coupled to a common environment. For initial Gaussian states, we identify three phases with different qualitative long time behavior. There is a phase where entanglement undergoes a sudden death (SD). Another phase (SDR) is characterized by an infinite sequence of events of sudden death and revival of entanglement. In the third phase (NSD), there is no sudden death of entanglement, which persists for a long time. The phase diagram is described, and analytic expressions for the boundary between phases are obtained. These results are applicable to a large variety of non-Markovian environments.
