# Exact Superconducting Instability in a Doped Mott Insulator

@article{Phillips2019ExactSI, title={Exact Superconducting Instability in a Doped Mott Insulator}, author={Philip W. Phillips and Luke Yeo and Edwin W. Huang}, journal={arXiv: Superconductivity}, year={2019} }

Because the cuprate superconductors are doped Mott insulators, it would be advantageous to solve even a toy model that exhibits both Mottness and superconductivity. We consider the Hatsugai-Kohmoto model, an exactly solvable system that is a prototypical Mott insulator above a critical interaction strength at half filling. Upon doping or reducing the interaction strength, our exact calculations show that the system becomes a non-Fermi liquid metal with a superconducting instability. In the…
