In this talk I will discuss several examples of interesting universal dynamics with quantum simulation. In the first example, I will discuss an expansion dynamics of scale invariant quantum gases in a time-dependent harmonic trap, that displays a discrete temporal scaling symmetry, and we term it as “the Efimovian expansion”. This dynamics reveals the scaling symmetry and the emergent conformal symmetry of strongly interacting quantum system. In the second example, I will discuss quench dynamics from a topological trivial Chern insulator to a topological nontrivial one, and we show how to extract a quantized value from the quench dynamics, that exactly equals to the topological Chern number of the final Hamiltonian after the quench. In the third example, I will prove a theorem that relates the entropy growth after a quench to the out-of-time-ordered correlation that recently discussed in the content of quantum chaos and holographic duality. This three examples reveal the interplay between quantum dynamics with symmetry, topology and entropy, respectively.
