Low-temperature thermodynamic properties of strongly interacting Fermi liquids with a fermion condensate are investigated. We demonstrate that the spin susceptibility of these systems exhibits the Curie-Weiss law, and the entropy contains a temperature-independent term. The excessive entropy is released at the superconducting transition, enhancing the… (More)
The heavy-fermion metal YbRh(2)Si(2) displays a field-driven quantum phase transition where signatures of a Fermi-surface reconstruction have been identified, often interpreted as a breakdown of the Kondo effect. We argue that instead many properties of the material can be consistently described by assuming a Zeeman-driven Lifshitz transition of narrow… (More)
A new scenario for neutron-star cooling is suggested by the correspondence between pion condensation, induced by critical spin-isospin fluctuations, and the metal-insulator phase transition in a 2D electron gas. Above the threshold density for pion condensation, the neutron single-particle spectrum acquires an insulating gap that quenches neutron… (More)
Ab initio gap equation for 1 S 0 pairing in a nuclear slab is solved for the Argonne v 18 N N-potential. The gap function is compared in detail with the one found previously for the separable form of the Paris potential. The difference between the two gaps turned out to be about 10%. Dependence of the gap on the chemical potential µ is analyzed.
We examine the problem of finite Fermi systems having a degenerate single-particle spectrum and show that the Landau approach, applied to such a system, admits the possibility of merging single-particle levels. It is demonstrated that the opportunity for this behavior is widespread in quantum many-body systems. The salient feature of the phenomenon is the… (More)
We construct machine learned regressors to predict the behaviour of DNA sequencing data from the fluorescent labelled Sanger method. These predictions are used to assess hypotheses for sequence composition through calculation of likelihood or deviation evidence from the comparison of predictions from the hypothesized sequence with target trace data. We… (More)
The phase transitions in a realistic system with triplet pairing, dense neutron matter, have been investigated. The spectrum of phases of the 3P2-3F2 model, which adequately describes pairing in this system, is analytically constructed with the aid of a separation method for solving BCS gap equations in states of arbitrary angular momentum. In addition to… (More)
We show that the merging of the spin- and valley-split Landau levels at the chemical potential is an intrinsic property of a strongly interacting two-dimensional electron system in silicon. Evidence for the level merging is given by available experimental data.
