We study finite-temperature phase transitions in a two-dimensional boson Hubbard model with zero-point quantum fluctuations via Monte Carlo simulations of a quantum rotor model and construct the corresponding phase diagram. Compressibility shows a thermally activated gapped behavior in the insulating regime. Finite-size scaling of the superfluid stiffness(More)
The influence of static disorder on a quantum phase transition (QPT) is a fundamental issue in condensed matter physics. As a prototypical example of a disorder-tuned QPT, the superconductor-insulator transition (SIT) has been investigated intensively over the past three decades, but as yet without a general consensus on its nature. A key element is good(More)
We study the zero-temperature phase transitions of a two-dimensional disordered boson Hubbard model at incommensurate boson densities. Via matrix diagonalization and quantum Monte Carlo simulations, we construct the phase diagram and evaluate the correlation length exponent n . In the presence of weak disorder, we obtain n50.560.1, the same value as that in(More)
