The growth of entanglement plays a fundamental role in the process of thermalization in closed quantum systems and has recently become amenable to experimental detection, through the measurement of so-called higher Rényi entropies. In this talk I will show that the behavior of such Rényi entropies can be qualitatively different from that of the theoretically more studied von Neumann entropy; in particular I will argue that the former grow sub-ballistically, as √t, in systems with diffusive transport. I provide evidence for this in both a U(1) symmetric random circuit model and in a non-integrable spin chain, where energy is the sole conserved quantity: I show how our results can be interpreted as a consequence of local quantum fluctuations in conserved densities.
