Recently, a new framework dubbed Ballistic Fluctuation Theory (BFT) has been proposed, which gives access to the full statistics of fluctuations of ballistically transported conserved quantities within homogeneous, stationary states [1]. The formalism, based on large deviation theory (LDT), is expected to apply to generic one-dimensional systems with an Euler hydrodynamic description. One of its most interesting application is to correlation functions of twist fields, which can be introduced any time the system possesses a symmetry. A particularly important example are branch-point twist fields associated to the Zn symmetry in a n-copies replicated theory, whose correlations functions provide the starting point for computing Rényi entanglement entropies within the replica approach [2]. In this talk, focusing on free fermionic systems, we apply the formalism to correlation functions of branch-point twist fields and show that both the equilibrium behavior and the dynamics of Renyi entanglement entropies can be simply derived from a unique formula, thus providing a unified interpretation of the two results [3].
