# Localization in the Ground State of an Interacting Quasi-Periodic Fermionic Chain

@article{Mastropietro2016LocalizationIT, title={Localization in the Ground State of an Interacting Quasi-Periodic Fermionic Chain}, author={Vieri Mastropietro}, journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics}, year={2016}, volume={342}, pages={217-250} }

We consider a one dimensional many body fermionic system with a large incommensurate external potential and a weak short range interaction. We prove, for chemical potentials in a gap of the non interacting spectrum, that the zero temperature thermodynamical correlations are exponentially decaying for large distances, with a decay rate much larger than the gap; this indicates the persistence of localization in the interacting ground state. The analysis is based on the renormalization group, and… Expand
