Physics Department Colloquium
Nonlinear Quantum Liquids in One Dimension
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 4:30 pm)
Speaker: Leonid Glazman, Yale University
Abstract: The conventional description of one-dimensional quantum fluids is based on the Luttinger liquid theory. In that theory, the true energy-momentum relation of particles making up the fluid is replaced by a linear one. This simplification is crucial for the theory, and abandoning it has proven to be difficult. The talk presents a breakthrough which allowed one to circumvent the difficulty. The new theory describes dynamic responses of a fluid consisting of particles with a generic spectrum. It is applicable to a diverse group of systems, including, for example, electrons in quantum wires and cold atomic gases in one-dimensional traps.
