Abstract Fokker-Planck equations have been applied in the past to field theory topics such as the stochastic quantization and the stabilization of bottomless action theories. In this paper we give another application of the FP-techniques in a way appropriate to the study of the ground state, the excited states and the critical behaviour of quantum lattice hamiltonians. Our approach is based on the choice of an exponential or Jastrow-like state which becomes the exact ground state of a discrete…

Strongly Interacting Spinless Fermions in D=1 and 2 Dimensions: A Perturbative-Variational Approach
We propose a perturbative-variational approach to interacting fermion systems on 1D and 2D lattices at half-filling. We address relevant issues such as the existence of Long Range Order, quantum
Stabilized quantum gravity stochastic interpretation and numerical simulation
Following the reasoning of Claudson and Halpern, it is shown that “fifth-time” stabilized quantum gravity is equivalent to Langevin evolution (i.e. stochastic quantization) between fixed
Two-Dimensional Ising Model as a Soluble Problem of Many Fermions
The two-dimensional Ising model for a system of interacting spins (or for the ordering of an AB alloy) on a square lattice is one of the very few nontrivial many-body problems that is exactly soluble
Calculation of the Yang-Mills vacuum wave functional
Working in the Schrodinger representation and A0 = 0 gauge, an approximate Yang-Mills ground-state wave functional Ψ[A] is constructed in the following way: we begin by constructing the vacuum wave
Valence bond ground states in isotropic quantum antiferromagnets
Haldane predicted that the isotropic quantum Heisenberg spin chain is in a “massive” phase if the spin is integral. The first rigorous example of an isotropic model in such a phase is presented. The
A fifth-time action approach to the conformal instability problem in euclidean quantum gravity
Abstract The fifth-time action technique (a general method for defining bottomless action theories) is applied to euclidean quantum gravity, whose Einstein-Hilbert action is unbounded from below. A
A quantum mechanical framework for pure two-dimensional gravity
Abstract A natural quantum mechanical framework for the study of pure 2D quantum gravity arises from the observation that a Fokker-Planck potential fixes the critical behavior of the system. This
Surface exponents of the quantum XXZ, Ashkin-Teller and Potts models
Eigenspectra of the critical quantum Ashkin-Teller and Potts chains with free boundaries can be obtained from that of the XXZ chain with free boundaries and a complex surface field. By deriving and
Exact Questions to Some Interesting Answers in Many Body Physics
In many body physics, we are usually faced with the intractable problem of finding the ground state wavefunction of a thermo dynamic ally large system of interacting particles. Typically this problem
Quantum Groups
This thesis consists of four papers. In the first paper we present methods and explicit formulas for describing simple weight modules over twisted generalized Weyl algebras. Under certain conditions
