# Quantum dynamics of the square-lattice Heisenberg model

@article{Verresen2018QuantumDO, title={Quantum dynamics of the square-lattice Heisenberg model}, author={R. Verresen and F. Pollmann and Roderich Moessner}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2018} }

Despite nearly a century of study of the $S=1/2$ Heisenberg model on the square lattice, there is still disagreement on the nature of its high-energy excitations. By tuning toward the Heisenberg model from the exactly soluble Ising limit, we find that the strongly attractive magnon interactions of the latter naturally account for a number of spectral features of the Heisenberg model. This claim is backed up both numerically and analytically. Using the density matrix renormalization group method…
