Based on the analogy with the quantum mechanics of a particle propagating in a complex potential, we develop a field-theoretical description of the statistical properties of a self-avoiding polymer chain in a random environment. We show that the account of the non-Hermiticity of the quantum Hamiltonian results in a qualitatively different structure of the(More)
In a noncentrosymmetric crystal, the Zeeman interaction of the band electrons with an external magnetic field is highly anisotropic in the momentum space, vanishing along some high-symmetry planes. One of the consequences is that the paramagnetic susceptibility in superconductors without inversion symmetry, such as CePt3Si, shows an unusual temperature(More)
We propose that superconductivity in the ferromagnetic state of ZrZn2 is stabilized by an exchange-type interaction between the magnetic moments of triplet-state Cooper pairs and the ferromagnetic magnetization density. This explains why superconductivity occurs in the ferromagnetic state only, and why it persists deep into the ferromagnetic state. The(More)
We present a Monte Carlo study of the helicity moduli of an anisotropic classical three-dimensional (3D) XY-model of YBCO in superconducting state. It is found that both the ab-plane and the c-axis helicity moduli, which are proportional to the inverse square of the corresponding magnetic field penetration depth, vary linearly with temperature at low(More)
We show that the nodal quasiparticles have a significant effect on the classical phase fluctuations in a quasi-two-dimensional d-wave superconductor. They give rise to singularities in the temperature behavior of some of the coupling constants in the phase-only effective action. One of the consequences is that the classical XY model is not adequate for the(More)
