A pr 2 00 4 Quantum Critical Metals : beyond the Order Parameter Fluctuations

Abstract

The standard description of quantum critical points takes into account only fluctuations of the order parameter, and treats quantum fluctuations as extra dimensions of classical fluctuations. This picture can break down in a qualitative fashion in quantum critical metals: non-Fermi liquid electronic excitations are formed precisely at the quantum critical… (More)
