We study finite-temperature phase structures of hard-core bosons in a two-dimensional optical lattice subject to an effective magnetic field by employing the gauged CP$^1$ model. Based on the extensive Monte Carlo simulations, we study their phase structures at finite temperatures for several values of the magnetic flux per plaquette of the lattice and mean particle density. Despite the presence of the particle number fluctuation, the thermodynamic properties are qualitatively similar to those…

In the previous papers, we studied the bosonic t-J mode and derived an effective field theory, which is a kind of quantum XY model. The bosonic t-J model is expected to be realized by experiments of

The rotational properties of Bose–Einstein condensates in a synthetic magnetic field are studied by numerically solving the Gross–Pitaevskii equation and comparing the results to those of condensates
