R. G. Herb Condensed Matter Seminar
Two- and three-dimensional spin liquid and interacting Majorana systems
Time: 10:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Zohar Nussinov, Washington University
Abstract: We examine the Hubbard model on pyrochlore-type lattices and illustrate how spin liquid features arise at a proximate exactly solvable point and its surroundings. We further introduce a framework for dualities and with its aid demonstrate that interacting Majorana nanowire systems as well as direction dependent Hubbard type and other general planar systems may display various critical and spin glass type phenomena.
