Zero-temperature or quantum phase transitions in itinerant electronic systems both with and without quenched disordered are discussed. Phase transitions considered include, the ferromagnetic transition, the antiferromagnetic transition, the superconductor-metal transition, and various metal-insulator transitions. Emphasis is placed on how to determine the universal properties that characterize these quantum phase transitions. For the first three of the phase transitions listed above, one of the… 
O ct 2 00 0 Quantum Phase Transitions
Phase transitions which occur at zero temperature when some non-thermal parameter like pressure, chemical composition or magnetic field is changed are called quantum phase transitions. They are
Quantum Phase Transitions
These are notes for lectures delivered at the NATO ASI on Dynamics in Leiden, The Netherlands, in July 1998. The main concepts relating to quantum phase transitions are explained, using the
Fluctuation-induced magnetic phase transitions in Fe and MnSi studied by neutron scattering
This thesis reports on the phase transition from the paramagnetic to the ferromagnetic phase in bcc-iron, and from the paramagnetic to the helimagnetic phase in the cubic helimagnet MnSi. In MnSi,
Magnetic tuning of Fermi level for tunnel spintronics devices
Treating itinerant magnetism within the simplest two-subband Hubbard model, it is shown that the variation of the Fermi energy under applied magnetic field is inversely proportional to the
Experimental Studies of Ultraslow Magnetisation Dynamics
The present thesis reports the study of ultraslow magnetisation dynamics in the vicinity of magnetic phase transitions. Namely, low-temperature magnetisation processes in the pyrochlore oxide Yb 2 Ti
