Extraordinary new materials named quasicrystals and characterized by noncrystallographic rotational symmetry and quasiperiodic translational properties have attracted scrutiny. Study of quasicrystals may shed light on the most basic notions related to the quantum critical state observed in heavy-fermion metals. We show that the electronic system of some quasicrystals is located at the fermion condensation quantum phase transition without tuning. In that case the quasicrystals possess the…

Quantum Criticality of Heavy-Fermion Compounds
Chapter 17 is devoted to the quantum criticality of quantum spin liquids. In this chapter we continue to consider the nature of quantum criticality in HF compounds. The quantum criticality induced by
Quasi-one-dimensional quantum spin liquid in the Cu(C4H4N2)(NO3)2 insulator
We analyze measurements of the magnetization, differential susceptibility and specific heat of quasi-onedimensional insulator Cu(C4H4N2)(NO3)2 (CuPzN) subjected to magnetic fields. We show that the
Non-Fermi-Liquid Behavior in Metallic Quasicrystals with Local Magnetic Moments.
TLDR
It is found that a large fraction of the magnetic moments are not quenched down to very low temperatures T, leading to a power-law distribution of Kondo temperatures P(T(K))∼T (K)(α-1), with a nonuniversal exponent α, in a remarkable similarity to the Kondo-disorder scenario found in disordered heavy-fermion metals.
Quasi-classical Physics Within Quantum Criticality in HF Compounds
In this chapter, we explore how the fermion condensation paves the road for quasi-classical physics in HF compounds. This means simply that systems with FC admit partly the quasi-classical
Strongly correlated Fermi systems as a new state of matter
The aim of this review paper is to expose a new state of matter exhibited by strongly correlated Fermi systems represented by various heavy-fermion (HF) metals, two-dimensional liquids like 3He,
New State of Matter: Heavy Fermion Systems, Quantum Spin Liquids, Quasicrystals, Cold Gases, and High-Temperature Superconductors
We report on a new state of matter manifested by strongly correlated Fermi systems including various heavy fermion (HF) metals, two-dimensional quantum liquids such as $$^3$$3He films, certain
Quantum Criticality, T-linear Resistivity, and Planckian Limit
In this chapter, we continue to consider the nature of quantum criticality and its relationships with Planckian limit. We explain experimental observations of universal scattering rate related to the
Flat Bands and Salient Experimental Features Supportingthe Fermion Condensation Theory of Strongly Correlated Fermi Systems
The physics of strongly correlated Fermi systems, being the mainstream topic for more than half a century, still remains elusive. Recent advancements in experimental techniques permit to collect
One-Dimensional Quantum Spin Liquid
We analyze measurements of the magnetization, differential susceptibility, and specific heat on one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet \(\mathrm{Cu(C_4H_4N_2)(NO_3)_2}\) (CuPzN) subjected to
Fermion Condensation, T-Linear Resistivity, and Planckian Limit
We explain recent challenging experimental observations of universal scattering rate related to the linear-temperature resistivity exhibited by a large corps of both strongly correlated Fermi systems
