We investigate the low density limit of the Homogeneous Electron system, often called the {\it Strictly Correlated} regime. We begin with a systematic presentation of the expansion around infinite $r_S$, based on the first quantized treatments suggested in the existing literature. We show that the expansion is asymptotic in the parameter $r_S^{1/4}$ and that the leading order result contains exponential corrections that are significant even for $r_S \sim 100$. Thus, the systematic expansion is…

On the Colloidal Phase of the Homogeneous Electron Fluid
We provide semi-rigorous arguments that the Homogeneous Electron Fluid (HEF) has a colloidal phase separating the Wigner Crystal from the high density fluid phase. Near the crossover between crystal


Instantons, colloids and convergence of the 1/N expansion for the homogeneous electron gas
We investigate non-perturbative corrections to the large $N$ expansion of the homogeneous electron gas. These are associated with instanton solutions to the effective action of the plasmon field. We
One-dimensional few-electron effective Wigner crystal in quantum and classical regimes
A system of confined charged electrons interacting via the long-range Coulomb force can form a Wigner crystal due to their mutual repulsion. This happens when the potential energy of the system
Quantum Theory of the Electron Liquid
Modern electronic devices and novel materials often derive their extraordinary properties from the intriguing, complex behavior of large numbers of electrons forming what is known as an electron
Zero‐Point Energy of an Electron Lattice
At very low densities an electron gas in a compensating uniform background of positive charge crystallizes into a bcc lattice for which the correlation energy per electron is (−1.792/rs) ry. At

The results allow a consistent interpretation of the plasmon and spin excitations observed in one-dimensional semiconductor structures, and suggest an interpretation of some of the observed features in terms of ``spinons.
Feynman's solution of the quintessential problem in solid state physics
Two of the most influential ideas developed by Richard Feynman are the Feynman diagram technique and his variational approach. The former provides a powerful tool to construct a systematic expansion
Renormalization and effective lagrangians
There is a strong intuitive understanding of renormalization, due to Wilson, in terms of the scaling of effective lagrangians. We show that this can be made the basis for a proof of perturbative
Excitonic Collective Mode and Negative Compressibility in Electron Liquids
A highly self-consistent theory maintaining the exact functional relations between the electron self-energy and the vertex part is employed to calculate the dielectric function $$\varepsilon({\bf
Application of the S.C.F. Method of Lattice Dynamics to the Coulomb Lattice
Anharmonic effects of the Coulomb-lattice vibrations are investigated by the time-deendent s.c.f.-method. In contrast to the traditional treatment using the lattice theory of Born there are higher
