We use a combination of three computational methods to investigate the notoriously difficult frustrated three-dimensional pyrochlore $S=\frac{1}{2}$ quantum antiferromagnet, at finite temperature $T$: canonical typicality for a finite cluster of $2\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}2\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}2$ unit cells (i.e., 32 sites), a finite-$T$ matrix product state method on a larger cluster with 48 sites, and the numerical linked cluster expansion (NLCE) using clusters up to 25… 

Possible Inversion Symmetry Breaking in the S=1/2 Pyrochlore Heisenberg Magnet.

A robust spontaneous inversion symmetry breaking is found, reflected in an energy density difference between the two sublattices of tetrahedra, familiar as a starting point of earlier perturbative treatments, and suggest a scenario in which a finite-temperature spin liquid regime gives way to a symmetry-broken state at low temperatures.

Multiloop functional renormalization group approach to quantum spin systems

Renormalization group methods are well-established tools for the (numerical) investigation of the low-energy properties of correlated quantum many-body systems, allowing to capture their

Finite-temperature phase transitions in $S=1/2$ three-dimensional Heisenberg magnets from high-temperature series expansions

By means of high-temperature series expansions we study the singularities of the specific heat ($c_v$) and the magnetic susceptibility ($\chi$) of $S=1/2$ models presenting a phase transition

L-based numerical linked cluster expansion for square lattice models

We introduce a numerical linked cluster expansion for square-lattice models whose building block is an L-shape cluster. This expansion exhibits a similar or better convergence of the bare sums than

Enhanced symmetry-breaking tendencies in the $S=1$ pyrochlore antiferromagnet

We investigate the ground-state properties of the nearest-neighbor S = 1 pyrochlore Heisenberg antiferromagnet using two complementary numerical methods, density-matrix renormalization group (DMRG)

Order, disorder, and monopole confinement in the spin- 12 XXZ model on a pyrochlore tube

We study the ground state and thermodynamic properties of the spin-half XXZ model, with an Ising interaction J z and a transverse exchange interaction J x , on a pyrochlore tube obtained by joining

Thermodynamics of the spin-half square kagome lattice antiferromagnet

Over the last decade, the interest in the spin-1 / 2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet (HAF) on the square-kagome (also called shuriken) lattice has been growing as a model system of quantum magnetism with

Quantum skyrmion lattices in Heisenberg ferromagnets

Skyrmions are topological magnetic textures that can arise in non-centrosymmetric ferromagnetic materials. In most systems experimentally investigated to date, skyrmions emerge as classical objects.
