Localization of interacting fermions at high temperature
We suggest that if a localized phase at nonzero temperature $Tg0$ exists for strongly disordered and weakly interacting electrons, as recently argued, it will also occur when both disorder and
Phenomenology of fully many-body-localized systems
Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences, The Graduate Center, CUNY, New York, NY 10016, USA(Dated: August 20, 2014)We consider fully many-body localized systems, i.e. isolated quantum systems where
Localization-protected quantum order
Closed quantum systems with quenched randomness exhibit many-body localized regimes wherein they do not equilibrate, even though prepared with macroscopic amounts of energy above their ground states.
Hilbert-Glass Transition: New Universality of Temperature-Tuned Many-Body Dynamical Quantum Criticality
Conventional phase transitions are usually characterized by a change in a fundamental thermodynamic observable, e.g., in density when liquid changes to vapor. A theoretical study of a one-dimensional
How to detect fluctuating stripes in the high-temperature superconductors
We discuss fluctuating order in a quantum disordered phase proximate to a quantum critical point, with particular emphasis on fluctuating stripe order. Optimal strategies for extracting information
Quantum theory of a nematic Fermi fluid
We develop a microscopic theory of the electronic nematic phase proximate to an isotropic Fermi liquid in both two and three dimensions. Explicit expressions are obtained for the small amplitude
Many-body localization in a quasiperiodic system
Recent theoretical and numerical evidence suggests that localization can survive in disordered many-body systems with very high energy density, provided that interactions are sufficiently weak.
Dynamical layer decoupling in a stripe-ordered high-T(c) superconductor.
It is proposed that the Josephson coupling between near neighbor planes, especially in a crystal with the special structure of La(2-x)Ba(x)CuO(4), vanishes identically, and is the underlying cause of the dynamical decoupling of the layers recently observed in transport measurements at x = 1/8.
Statistical theory of transport by strongly interacting lattice fermions
We present a study of electric transport at high temperature in a model of strongly interacting spinless fermions without disorder. We use exact diagonalization to study the statistics of the energy
