We study disordered spin-1 quantum chains with random exchange and biquadratic interactions using a real space renormalization group approach. We find that the dimerized phase of the pure biquadratic model is unstable and gives rise to a random singlet phase in the presence of weak disorder. In the Haldane region of the phase diagram we obtain a quite different behavior. 
Phase diagram of the random Heisenberg antiferromagnetic spin-1 chain.
A new perturbative real space renormalization group (RG) is presented to study random quantum spin chains and other one-dimensional disordered quantum systems and finds a random singlet phase for strong disorder.
Nonadditive entropy for random quantum spin-S chains
We investigate the scaling of Tsallis entropy in disordered quantum spin-S chains. We show that an extensive scaling occurs for specific values of the entropic index. Those values depend only on the
Magnetization process of random quantum spin chains
The magnetization process of spin chains with randomness is discussed. We emphasize a close analogy between these systems and disordered particle systems and pay particular attention to the
Tensor network renormalization group study of spin-1 random Heisenberg chains
Abstract We use a tensor network strong-disorder renormalization group (tSDRG) method to study spin-1 random Heisenberg antiferromagnetic chains. The ground state of the clean spin-1 Heisenberg chain
Numerical analysis of the bond-random antiferromagnetic S=1 Heisenberg chain
The ground state of the bond-random antiferromagnetic S=1 Heisenberg chain with the biquadratic interaction −β∑i(Si·Si+1)2 is investigated by means of the exact-diagonalization method and the
Large moment formation and thermodynamic properties of disordered spin ladders with site dilution
Low temperature properties of antiferromagnetic two-leg spin-1/2 ladders with bond randomness and site dilution (or doping with nonmagnetic impurities) are studied using the real-space
Quantum first-order phase transitions
The scaling theory of critical phenomena has been successfully extended for classical first-order transitions even though the correlation length does not diverge in these transitions. In this paper,
Random-field-driven phase transitions in the ground state of the S=1 XXZ spin chain
The ground state of the S=1 XXZ spin chain under the influence of the random magnetic field is studied by means of the exact diagonalization method. The S=12 counterpart has been investigated
Strong disorder RG approach of random systems
Abstract There is a large variety of quantum and classical systems in which the quenched disorder plays a dominant role over quantum, thermal, or stochastic fluctuations: these systems display strong
Disorder-driven non-Fermi liquid behaviour of correlated electrons
Systematic deviations from standard Fermi-liquid behaviour have been widely observed and documented in several classes of strongly correlated metals. For many of these systems, mounting evidence is


Random Antiferromagnetic Chain
The quantum spin- 1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet in one dimension with randomly distributed coupling constants is solved approximately. Ground-state energies and low-temperature properties are
New Results for q-State Vertex Models and the Pure Biquadratic Spin-1 Hamiltonian
New exactly solvable SO(q)-invariant q-state vertex models are introduced. We employ a new method using inversion relations which enables us to determine directly the spectra of the transfer
Nonlinear Field Theory of Large-Spin Heisenberg Antiferromagnets: Semiclassically Quantized Solitons of the One-Dimensional Easy-Axis Néel State
The continuum field theory describing the low-energy dynamics of the large-spin one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet is found to be the O(3) nonlinear sigma model. When weak easy-axis
