# Ground-state energies of spinless free fermions and hard-core bosons.

@article{Nie2013GroundstateEO, title={Ground-state energies of spinless free fermions and hard-core bosons.}, author={Wenxing Nie and Hosho Katsura and Masaki Oshikawa}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2013}, volume={111 10}, pages={ 100402 } }

We compare the ground-state energies of bosons and fermions with the same form of the Hamiltonian. If both are noninteracting, the ground-state energy of bosons is always lower, owing to Bose-Einstein condensation. However, the comparison is nontrivial when bosons do interact. We first prove that, when the hopping is unfrustrated (all the hopping amplitudes are non-negative), hard-core bosons still must have a lower ground-state energy than fermions. If the hopping is frustrated, bosons can…

It is shown that exchange of phonons generates effective nearest-neighbor repulsion between particles and also gives rise to interactions that move the pair as a whole, and that the coupling to phonons may completely suppress or strongly enhance quantum transport of correlated particles.
