Abstract: The exciting physics of quantum phase transitions has been explored extensively in the last few years [1,2]. The non-equilibrium dynamics of a quantum system when quenched very fast [3] or slowly across a quantum critical point [4,5] has attracted the attention of several groups recently. The possibility of experimental realizations of quantum dynamics in spin-1 Bose condensates [6] and atoms trapped in optical lattices [7,8] has led to an upsurge in studies of related theoretical models [3,4,5,9,10,11,12,13,…
