Theory of Dynamic Critical Phenomena
An introductory review of the central ideas in the modern theory of dynamic critical phenomena is followed by a more detailed account of recent developments in the field. The concepts of theExpand
Dislocation-mediated melting in two dimensions
A theory of dislocation-mediated melting in two dimensions is described in detail, with an emphasis on results for triangular lattices on both smooth and periodic substrates. The transition fromExpand
Quantized Hall conductance, current carrying edge states, and the existence of extended states in a two-dimensional disordered potential
When a conducting layer is placed in a strong perpendicular magnetic field, there exist current-carrying electron states which are localized within approximately a cyclotron radius of the sampleExpand
Nonlocal magnetization dynamics in ferromagnetic heterostructures
Two complementary effects modify the GHz magnetization dynamics of nanoscale heterostructures of ferromagnetic and normal materials relative to those of the isolated magnetic constituents. On the oneExpand
Anomalous low-temperature thermal properties of glasses and spin glasses
Abstract We show that a linear specific heat at low temperatures for glass follows naturally from general considerations on the glassy state. From the same considerations we obtain the experimentallyExpand
Hopping Conductivity in Disordered Systems
By considering a model in which charge is transported via phonon-induced tunneling of electrons between localized states which are randomly distributed in energy and position, Mott has obtained anExpand
Theory of Two-Dimensional Melting
The consequences of a theory of dislocation-mediated two-dimensional melting are worked out for triangular lattices. Dissociation of dislocation pairs first drives a transition into a "liquidExpand
Critical phenomena in systems with long-range-correlated quenched disorder
As a model for a phase transition in an inhomogeneous system, we consider a system where the local transition temperature varies in space, with a correlation function obeying a power lawExpand
Particle-hole symmetry and the Pfaffian state.
We show that the particle-hole conjugate of the Pfaffian state-or "anti-Pfaffian" state-is in a different universality class from the Pfaffian state, with different topological order. The two statesExpand
