In conclusion we say several words about the structure and style of this book. All this looks extremely revolutionary and complicated, but once a condensed matter physicist has found time and courage to acquiant himself with these ideas and theories, these would not appear to him ut- terly unfamihar.

The problems of strongly correlated systems are among the most difficult problems of physics we are now aware of. The first part of the book examines the technical aspects of bosonization. Wu, The two-dimensional Ising model.

Condensed Matter > Strongly Correlated Electrons

strong,y It turns out however, that in many cases interactions can be effectively removed by the second transformation – in the given case from the fermions to a scalar massless bosonic field. JETP 34, Stone, World Scientific So here we encounter a situation when the whole is greater than its parts, which is always difficult to analyse.

One way is that you imagine that reality on some level is also two dimensional. Bosonization and Srrongly Correlated Systems. Only in this sense can one say that ‘proton consists of three quarks’. The smallness of the dimensionless coupling constant a obscures the quantum character of electromagnetic forces yielding a very small cross section for processes of transformation of photons into electron-positron pairs. However, invoking images and using language quite inadequate for the essence of the phenomenon in question this description more confuses 4 than explains.


This volume provides a detailed account of bosonization. Popular passages Page – N. As an example we can mention the Ising model which has been very extensively studied, but scarcely used in applications.

Inequivalent chains nonAbelian bosonization. It is the most important result of CFT that correlation functions of critical systems obey an infinite number of the Ward identities which have a form of differential equations.

JETP, 23, This nontrivial fact, known as dynamical mass generation, was discovered by Vaks and Larkin in You do it by flipping individual spins and looking at propagating waves. Hence fractional quantum numbers.

When you realize the existence of this astonishing parallelism, it is very difficult not to think that there is something very deep about it, that here you come across a general principle of Nature correltaed to which same ideas are realized on different space-time scales, on different hierarchical ‘layers’, as a Platonist would put it.

Topological confinement puts restriction only on correlatsd overall 10 number of particles leaving their spectrum unchanged. Appendix Stronyly equations for the model of onedimensional electrons.

Topics include one-dimensional fermions, the Gaussian model, the structure of Hilbert space in conformal theories, Bose-Einstein condensation in two dimensions, non-Abelian bosonization, and the Ising and WZNW models. This is exactly what we see in conventional magnets with spin-1 particles beeing magnons. The problem the diagrammatic perturbation theory could not tackle was that of the strong coupling limit.

Bosonization and strongly correlated systems – INSPIRE-HEP

We use these words to describe a situation when low-energy excitations of a many-body system differ drastically from the con- stituent particles. This approach is a substitute for the Hamiltonian formalism, since the Hamiltonian is effectively replaced by Ward identities for correlation functions.


Below we will briefly go through these paralellisms and discuss the history of this discipline, its main concepts, ideas and also the features which excite interest in different communities of physicists. An important discovery of non-Abelian bosonization was made in strkngly Polyakov and WiegmannWittenWiegmann and Knizhnik and Zamolodchikov This does not prevent one from trying to sum the entire series which was brilliantly achieved by Dzyaloshinskii and Larkin for the Tomonaga-Luttinger model using the Ward identities.

Bychkov, Gor’kov and Dzyaloshinskii were the first who pointed out that instabilities of one-dimensional metals cannot be abd in a mean-field-like approximation. This book is an attempt to breach the gap between mathematics of strongly correlated systems and its applications. Chapters cover potential scattering, the X-ray edge problem, impurities in Tomonaga-Luttinger liquids and the multi-channel Kondo problem.

More about the WZNW model. We shall also frequently use the field theory jargon: Anderson, from More is different High energy physics continues to fascinate people inside and adn of science, being percieved as the ‘most fundamental’ area of research. The third part addresses the problems of quantum impurities.
