We study the zero-temperature phase transitions of two-dimensional superconducting arrays with both the self- and the junction capacitances in the presence of external magnetic fields. We consider two kinds of excitations from the Mott insulating phase, charge-dipole excitations and single-charge excitations, and apply the second-order perturbation theory to find their energies. The resulting phase boundaries are found to depend strongly on the magnetic frustration, which measures the…

Phase diagram of the bose-hubbard model with T3 symmetry
In this paper we study the quantum phase transition between the insulating and the globally coherent superfluid phases in the Bose-Hubbard model with T_3 structure, the "dice lattice". Even in the
Reentrant quantum phase transitions in two capacitively coupled Josephson arrays in perpendicular magnetic fields
We have studied the phase diagram structure of two capacitively coupled Josephson junction arrays as a function of their charging energy ${E}_{c}$, Josephson coupling energy ${E}_{J}$, and a
