FAST TRACK COMMUNICATION: Topological phase transitions and holonomies in the dimer model
We demonstrate that the classical dimer model defined on a toroidal hexagonal lattice acquires holonomy phases in the thermodynamic limit. When all activities are equal the lattice sizes must be
On domain wall boundary conditions for the XXZ spin Hamiltonian
In this note, we derive the spectrum of the infinite quantum XXZ spin chain with domain wall boundary conditions. The eigenstates are constructed as limits of Bethe states for the finite XXZ spin
A stringy perspective on the quantum integrable model/gauge correspondence
We present a string theory realization for the correspondence between quantum integrable models and supersymmetric gauge theories. The quantization results from summing the effects of fundamental
Study of quantum dimer and partition models on honeycomb lattices
The quantum dimer models (QDM's) have a series of interesting behaviors, such as topological order and spin liquid phases. In this thesis, we study these models for an honeycomb lattice, and also
Topological Strings and Quantum Curves
This thesis presents several new insights on the interface between mathematics and theoretical physics, with a central role for Riemann surfaces. First of all, the duality between Vafa-Witten theory
Superdiffusion in spin chains
This review summarizes recent advances in our understanding of anomalous transport in spin chains, viewed through the lens of integrability. Numerical advances, based on tensor-network methods, have
Relating gauge theories via Gauge/Bethe correspondence
In this note, we use techniques from integrable systems to study relations between gauge theories. The Gauge/Bethe correspondence, introduced by Nekrasov and Shatashvili, identifies the
2 Omega-deformation of Seiberg – Witten theory as a five-brane web in type IIB
We present a string theory construction of Omega-deformed four-dimensional gauge theories with generic values of e1 and e2. Our solution gives an explicit description of the geometry in the core of
Hamiltonian quantum computing with superconducting qubits
We consider how the Hamiltonian Quantum Computing scheme introduced in [arXiv:1509.01278] can be implemented using a 2D array of superconducting transmon qubits. We show how the scheme requires the


Quantum Calabi-Yau and Classical Crystals
We propose a new duality involving topological strings in the limit of the large string coupling constant. The dual is described in terms of a classical statistical mechanical model of crystal
Some properties for the low-lying spectrum of the ferromagnetic, quantum XXZ spin system
In this thesis we present three results about the ferromagnetic quantum XXZ model: 1) Existence of a spectral gap above all infinite-volume ground states in one dimension for any choice of spin
Quantum foam and topological strings
We find an interpretation of the recent connection found between topological strings on Calabi-Yau threefolds and crystal melting: Summing over statistical mechanical configuration of melting crystal
Reaction - diffusion processes, critical dynamics and quantum chains
Abstract The master equation describing non-equilibrium one-dimensional problems like diffusion limited reactions or critical dynamics of classical spin systems can be written as a Schrodinger
Common structures between finite systems and conformal field theories through quantum groups
Abstract We discuss in this paper algebraic structures that are common to finite integrable lattice systems and conformal field theories. The concept of quantum group plays a major role in our study,
Droplet Excitations for the Spin-1/2 XXZ Chain with Kink Boundary Conditions
Abstract.We give a precise definition for excitations consisting of a droplet of size n in the XXZ chain with various choices of boundary conditions, including kink boundary conditions and prove
From classical to quantum dynamics at Rokhsar–Kivelson points
For any classical statistical-mechanics model with a discrete state space, and endowed with a dynamics satisfying detailed balance, it is possible to generalize the Rokhsar–Kivelson point for the
Ground states of the infinite q-deformed Heisenberg ferromagnet
We set up a general structure for the analysis of ``frustration-free ground states'', or ``zero-energy states'', i.e., states minimizing each term in a lattice interaction individually. The nesting
From quantum mechanics to classical statistical physics: Generalized Rokhsar–Kivelson Hamiltonians and the “Stochastic Matrix Form” decomposition
Abstract Quantum Hamiltonians that are fine-tuned to their so-called Rokhsar–Kivelson (RK) points, first presented in the context of quantum dimer models, are defined by their representations in
