We study quantum transport in disordered systems with particle-hole symmetric Hamiltonians. The particle-hole symmetry is spontaneously broken after averaging with respect to disorder, and the resulting massless mode is treated in a random-phase representation of the invariant measure of the symmetry group. We compute the resulting fermionic functional integral of the average two-particle Green's function in a perturbation theory around the diffusive limit. The results up to two-loop order show…

Magneto-transport signatures in periodically-driven Weyl and multi-Weyl semimetals
We investigate the influence of a time-periodic driving (for example, by shining circularly polarized light) on three-dimensional Weyl and multi-Weyl semimetals, in the planar Hall and planar thermal
Magnus Hall Effect In Three-Dimensional Topological Semimetals
Magnus Hall effect (MHE) is a non-linear Hall effect requiring no external magnetic field, which can be observed when an in-built electric field couples to the Berry curvature of the material,


Quantum transport in a three-dimensional Weyl electron system
Quantum transport in three-dimensional massless Dirac electron system with long-range Gaussian impurities is studied theoretically using a self-consistent Born approximation (SCBA). We find that the
Dynamical symmetry breaking in a 2D electron gas with a spectral node
We study a disordered 2D electron gas with a spectral node in a vicinity of the node. After identifying the fundamental dynamical symmetries of this system, the spontaneous breaking of the latter by
Quantum transport in 3D Weyl semimetals: Is there a metal-insulator transition?
Abstract We calculate the transport properties of three-dimensional Weyl fermions in a disordered environment. The resulting conductivity depends only on the Fermi energy and the scattering rate.
Quantum transport with strong scattering: beyond the nonlinear sigma model
Transport properties of a two-band system with spectral nodes are studied in the presence of random scattering. Starting from a Grassmann functional integral, we derive a bosonic representation that
Diffusion in the random gap model of monolayer and bilayer graphene
In this paper we study the effect of a fluctuating gap in mono- and bilayer graphene, created by a symmetry-breaking random potential. We identify a continuous symmetry for the two-particle Green’s
Holographic Quantum Matter
We present a review of theories of states of quantum matter without quasiparticle excitations. Solvable examples of such states are provided through a holographic duality with gravitational theories
Theory of the Nernst effect near quantum phase transitions in condensed matter and in dyonic black holes
We present a general hydrodynamic theory of transport in the vicinity of superfluid-insulator transitions in two spatial dimensions described by ``Lorentz''-invariant quantum critical points. We
Diffusive quantum criticality in three-dimensional disordered Dirac semimetals
Three dimensional Dirac semimetals are stable against weak potential disorder, but not against strong disorder. In the language of renormalization group, such stability stems from the irrelevance of
Scaling behavior and universality near the quantum Hall transition
A two-dimensional lattice system of non-interacting electrons in a homogeneous magnetic field with half a flux quantum per plaquette and a random potential is considered. For the large scale behavior
