The quantum dynamics away from equilibrium is of fundamental interest for interacting many-body systems. In this letter, we study tilted many-body systems using the effective Hamiltonian derived from the microscopic description. We first give general arguments for the density relaxation rate satisfying 1/τ∝k⁴ for a large class of systems, including the Fermi Hubbard model case as observed in the the recent experiment [1]. Here k is the wave vector of the density wave. The main ingredients are the emergence of the reflection symmetry and dipole moment conservation to the leading non-trivial order of the large tilted strength. To support our analysis, we then construct a solvable model with large local Hilbert space dimension by coupling sites discribed by the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev models, where the density response can be computed explicitly. The the tilt strength and the temperature dependence of the subdiffusion constant are also discussed.
