One-dimensional quantum systems (SS 12)

Start: 23.4.2012

This lecture will be held in English

Where and when: Mondays 16:00-18:00 (Appelstr. 2, 2nd Floor, 269) (but be careful because some times the place and time may change; I will announce it with time.)


Bosonization for spin-less fermions
Bosonization for spin-1/2 fermions
Phenomenological bosonization
Long-range interactions and Mott transition
Magnetic anisotropy, Klein factors and logarithmic corrections
Spin-1/2 chains

We will follow almost exclusively the book of Th. Giamarchi on Quantum Physics in One-Dimension.
