We study the presence of Pomeranchuk instabilities induced by interactions on a Fermi liquid description of a graphene layer. Using a recently developed generalization of Pomeranchuk method we present a phase diagram in the space of fillings versus on-site and nearest neighbors interactions. Interestingly, we find that for both interactions being repulsive an instability region exists near the Van Hove filling, in agreement with earlier theoretical work. In contrast, near half filling, the…

Pomeranchuk instabilities in multicomponent lattice systems at finite Temperature

In the present paper we extend the method to detect Pomeranchuk instabilities in lattice systems developed in previous works to study more general situations. The main result presented here is the

Pomeranchuk instabilities in holographic metals

We develop a method to detect instabilities leading to nematic phases in strongly coupled metallic systems. We do so by adapting the well-known Pomeranchuk technique to a weakly coupled system of

Topological Fermi liquids from Coulomb interactions in the doped honeycomb lattice.

It is shown that when the unit cell is enlarged to host six atoms that permits Kekulé distortions, self-consistent currents spontaneously form creating nontrivial magnetic configurations with total zero flux at high electron densities.

Fermi surface instabilities at finite temperature

We present a new method to detect Fermi surface instabilities for interacting systems at finite temperature. We first apply it to a list of cases studied previously, recovering already known results

Pairing and chiral spin density wave instabilities on the honeycomb lattice : A comparative quantum Monte Carlo study

Using finite-temperature determinantal quantum Monte Carlo calculations, we re-examine the pairing susceptibilities in the Hubbard model on the honeycomb lattice, focusing on doping levels onto and

Magnetic-flux-driven topological quantum phase transition and manipulation of perfect edge states in graphene tube

This model has different nontrivial topological phases as the flux changes, including two perfect midgap edge states, in which the particle is completely located at the boundary, even for a tube with finite length.

Nematic order on the surface of a three-dimensional topological insulator

We study the spontaneous breaking of rotational symmetry in the helical surface state of three-dimensional topological insulators due to strong electron-electron interactions, focusing on

Spin orbit magnetism and unconventional superconductivity

We find an exotic spin excitation in a magnetically ordered system with spin orbit magnetism in 2D, where the order parameter has a net spin current and no net magnetization. Starting from a Fermi

Spin-orbit coupled Fermi liquid theory of ultracold magnetic dipolar fermions

We investigate Fermi liquid states of the ultra-cold magnetic dipolar Fermi gases in the simplest two-component case including both thermodynamic instabilities and collective excitations. The
