We devise a dimensional regularization scheme for quantum field theories with Fermi surface to study scaling behaviour of non-Fermi liquid states in a controlled approximation. Starting from a Fermi surface in two space dimensions, the co-dimension of Fermi surface is extended to a general value while the dimension of Fermi surface is fixed. When Fermi surface is coupled with a critical boson centered at zero momentum, the interaction becomes marginal at a critical space dimension d_c=5/2. A… 
Controlled non-Fermi liquids from spacetime dependent couplings
We construct perturbatively controlled non-Fermi liquids in 3+1 spacetime dimensions, using mild power-law translation breaking interactions. Our mechanism balances the leading tree level eects from
Non-Fermi liquid at the FFLO quantum critical point
When a 2D superconductor is subjected to a strong in-plane magnetic field, Zeeman polarization of the Fermi surface can give rise to inhomogeneous FFLO order with a spatially modulated gap. Further
Ultraviolet/infrared mixing in non-Fermi liquids
We study low-energy effective field theories for non-Fermi liquids with Fermi surfaces of general dimensions and co-dimensions. When the dimension of Fermi surface is greater than one, low-energy
Aspects of Renormalization in Finite Density Field Theory
We study the renormalization of the Fermi surface coupled to a massless boson near three spatial dimensions. For this, we set up a Wilsonian RG with independent decimation procedures for bosons and
Two-Dimensional Non-Fermi-Liquid Metals: A Solvable Large-N Limit.
TLDR
It is shown that an alternate approach, in which the fermions belong to the fundamental representation of a global SU(N) flavor symmetry, while the order parameter fields transform under the adjoint representation (a "matrix large-N" theory), yields a tractable large N limit.
Infinite critical boson induced non-Fermi liquid in $d=3-\epsilon$ dimensions
We study the fermion-boson coupled system in d = 3 − (cid:15) space dimensions near the quantum phase transition; infinite many boson modes locating on a sphere become critical simultaneously, which
Emergent Fermi surfaces, fractionalization and duality in supersymmetric QED
A bstractWe study the physics of 3d supersymmetric abelian gauge theories (with small supersymmetry breaking perturbations) at finite density. Using mirror symmetry, which provides a natural
Quantum fluctuations in two-dimensional metals with singular forward scattering
This thesis investigates the low-energy theory of two-dimensional metals with singular forward scattering in the charge channel. Singular forward scattering occurs for example at a nematic quantum
Quantum critical metals in $4-\epsilon$ dimensions
We study the quantum theory of a Fermi surface coupled to a gapless boson scalar in $D=4\ensuremath{-}\ensuremath{\epsilon}$ space-time dimensions as a simple model for non-Fermi liquids (NFL) near a

Non-Fermi-liquid d-wave metal phase of strongly interacting electrons
TLDR
It is shown that this remarkable quantum phase is the ground state of a reasonable microscopic Hamiltonian—the usual t–J model with electron kinetic energy t and two-spin exchange J supplemented with a frustrated electron ‘ring-exchange’ term, which is examined extensively on the square lattice two-leg ladder.
Fermi Liquid Near a Quantum Critical Point
We investigate the approach to the quantum critical point of a Pomeranchuk instability from the symmetric, disordered side of the phase diagram. In the low-temperature limit, a Fermi liquid
Broken rotational symmetry in the pseudogap phase of a high-Tc superconductor
TLDR
It is concluded that the pseudogap phase is an electronic state that strongly breaks four-fold rotational symmetry, which narrows the range of possible states considerably, pointing to stripe or nematic order.
Electronic Liquid Crystal State in the High-Temperature Superconductor YBa2Cu3O6.45
TLDR
The spontaneous onset of a one-dimensional, incommensurate modulation of the spin system in the high-transition-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O6 suggests that soft spin fluctuations are a microscopic route toward electronic liquid crystals and that nematic order can coexist with high-tem temperature superconductivity in underdoped cuprates.

Formation of a Nematic Fluid at High Fields in Sr3Ru2O7
TLDR
It is reported that, in the close vicinity of a metamagnetic quantum critical point, high-purity strontium ruthenate Sr3Ru2O7 possesses a large magnetoresistive anisotropy, consistent with the existence of an electronic nematic fluid.
