Recent theoretical studies of various strongly-correlated systems in condensed matter physics reveal that the lattice gauge theory(LGT) developed in high-energy physics is quite a useful tool to understand physics of these systems. Knowledges of LGT are to become a necessary item even for condensed matter physicists. In the first part of this paper, we present a concise review of LGT for the reader who wants to understand its basics for the first time. For illustration, we choose the abelian… 
Floquet approach to ℤ2 lattice gauge theories with ultracold atoms in optical lattices
Quantum simulation has the potential to investigate gauge theories in strongly-interacting regimes, which are up to now inaccessible through conventional numerical techniques. Here, we take a first
Z2 lattice gauge theories and Kitaev's toric code: A scheme for analog quantum simulation
This work proposes a building block for lattice gauge theories coupled to dynamical matter and demonstrates how it allows for an implementation of the toric-code ground state and its topological excitations, and paves the way for realizing non-Abelian anyons in analog quantum simulators.

Asymmetric Synaptic Connections in Z(2) Gauge Neural Network
The model of asymmetric coupling is considered (J_{ij} and \(J_{ji}\) are independent), and the effect of asymmetry on a partially connected random network is examined.
Gauge Neural Network with Z(2) Synaptic Variables: Phase Structure and Simulation of Learning and Recalling Patterns
The phase diagram for the case of nonvanishing Z(2) gauge-invariant neural network is considered, and it is found that the c2 term enlarges the region of Higgs phase and generates a new second-order transition.
Sampling using SU(N) gauge equivariant flows
A flow-based sampling algorithm for lattice gauge theories that is gauge-invariant by construction and constructing a class of flows on an SU(N) variable that respect matrix conjugation symmetry is developed.


Doping a Mott insulator: Physics of high-temperature superconductivity
This article reviews the physics of high-temperature superconductors from the point of view of the doping of a Mott insulator. The basic electronic structure of cuprates is reviewed, emphasizing the
Atomic quantum simulation of the lattice gauge-Higgs model: Higgs couplings and emergence of exact local gauge symmetry.
The effect of violation of the U(1) local gauge invariance is studied by relaxing the fine-tuning of the parameters and showing that a wide variety of cold atoms is still a faithful quantum simulator for a U( 1) gauge-Higgs model containing a Higgs field sitting on sites.
Lattice Ginzburg-Landau model of a ferromagnetic p -wave pairing phase in superconducting materials and an inhomogeneous coexisting state
We study the interplay of the ferromagnetic (FM) state and the $p$-wave superconducting (SC) state observed in several materials such as UCoGe and URhGe in a totally nonperturbative manner. To this
Scaling and Renormalization in Statistical Physics
This text provides a thoroughly modern graduate-level introduction to the theory of critical behaviour. Beginning with a brief review of phase transitions in simple systems and of mean field theory,
CP 1 +U (1) lattice gauge theory in three dimensions: Phase structure, spins, gauge bosons, and instantons
In this paper we study a 3D lattice spin model of CP$^1$ Schwinger-bosons coupled with dynamical compact U(1) gauge bosons. The model contains two parameters; the gauge coupling and the hopping
Topological excitations in the Abelian Higgs model
A lattice version of the Abelian Higgs model is studied in arbitrary Euclidean dimension. Using an exact duality transformation, the theory is rewritten in terms of its topological excitations. The
Confinement of Quarks
A mechanism for total confinement of quarks, similar to that of Schwinger, is defined which requires the existence of Abelian or non-Abelian gauge fields. It is shown how to quantize a gauge field
Luttinger-liquid" behavior of the normal metallic state of the 2D Hubbard model.
Analysis of interacting fermion systems shows that there are two fundamentally different fixed points, Fermi-liquid theory and «Luttinger-liquid theory» (Haldane), a state in which charge and spin
