# Quantum Phase Transitions of Metals in Two Spatial Dimensions: II. Spin density Wave Order

@article{Metlitski2010QuantumPT, title={Quantum Phase Transitions of Metals in Two Spatial Dimensions: II. Spin density Wave Order}, author={Max A. Metlitski and Subir Sachdev}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2010}, volume={82}, pages={075128} }

We present a field-theoretic renormalization group analysis of Abanov and Chubukov’s model of the spin density wave transition in two dimensional metals. We identify the independent field scale and coupling constant renormalizations in a local field theory and argue that the damping constant of spin density wave fluctuations tracks the renormalization of the local couplings. The divergences at two-loop order overdetermine the renormalization constants and are shown to be consistent with our…

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
